This up to date reworking of a classic childrens fairy tale is an absolute delight. The illustrations are bold and colourful, with plenty of humour in even the smallest detail. It is great fun to read aloud and the 'flip-flap' style of the book gets children to interact with the story as it progresses. It is proof that a good story never dates and the use of a more modern style of illustration will ensure that this book appeals to the children as much as it's parents.
