Our entire family loves to read this book. I would say it is geared towards 4-6 year olds, as it is about overcoming fears. It puts a spin on typical fairytales with lots of laughs and silliness. I am buying copies for all my "kid-friends" for Christmas.

This book is all about Herb who is scared of his fairytale book being left in his bedrm in case the characters come to life. His mum forgets one night to take it with her & the story is all about what happens as Herb deals with the 2 wolves who want to eat him ("little boys is pudding!!!"). I bought this book for my 5 yr old son but it was so much fun that my 9 yr old was asking if he could listen in too! This book is fantastic fun - lots of scope for silly voices whilst reading (i love doing the wolves & the fairy godmother!). As with all Lauren Child books , this comes highly recommended by my whole family - kids & adults alike!

Hilarious story which is as much fun to read as it is for the kids. Works on ten different levels so if you have kids of different ages this is a great book to keep everyone amused. Highly recommended.

My daughter enjoyed this book but watch out because she now refuses to go upstairs alone because she is scared that the story book wolves are about. She loves other Lauren Child books. Be warned!

My 6 year old and nine year old daughters both love this book. Unusual well thought out story and great illustrations - funny not scary.

Bought as a gift, but had to get on one for my own kids! A great story to keep wee ones interested, my 6yr old and 4 yr old both love it! A good move up from Charlie and Lola

This is an excellent book for 3-year-olds, who enjoy slightly scarey stories so long as they fall within a recognised pattern and are happily resolved in the end. Alfie enjoys fairy tales at bedtime so long as the book isn't left in his room. However, when he finds himself threatened by the story book wolves, he resourcefully uses other fairy tale characters to repel them them, often with surprising results. The author uses young cjildren/s love of make-believe games, and produces two rather lovable villains, and a satisfactory si#olution to Alfie,s problem.

This is another book by Lauren Child. She is an amazing author! Her stories are witty and illustrations are wonderful too.
This story is about Herb, the boy whose book came to life - the wolves escape from his storybook!
It's a fun story. Illustrations are wonderful too! Kids would love it!

Read this to my class and they loved it - from the characters, the illustrations, the humour and the 'happy ending'. We're all ready to find out what happens in 'Who's afraid of the big bad book?'

Will be buying a copy for my 7 year old niece's birthday.
