This excellent book is in a similar format to Dear Mother Goose (Lift the Flap Book), but with characters from fairy tales instead of nursery rhymes. In this story they write to the Fairy Godmother for answers to their problems. So, for example, how can the gingerbread man stop everybody chasing him all the time? How are the three little pigs to leave their brick house, with the big bad wolf lurking outside? And what about the boy who keeps climbing up the beanstalk and bothering the giant? The Fairy Godmother has an hilarious answer for every problem and the bright illustrations and large flaps make this is a great read for any child. Even the youngest toddler will be engaged, while slightly older four and five year olds will enjoy the humour. Another winner from the fantastic Mr Rosen!
This is the best children's book I've read in ages, it takes all the classic fairytale characters and combines them with the magic of the fairy godmother to produce an extremely entertaining book. Would make any reader smile. Great illustrations too.
My 8 yr old likes it very much. my sister laughed out loud while reading the book and this is why i am giving it a 5 star. As for me i really do like the book but i would have given it four stars, though as a child i have always imagined about mixing and matching the fairytale characters so it's sort of a dream come true type of thing.
Our grandchildren love this book, particularly sharing it and enjoying lifting the flaps and appreciating the jokes when they know the traditional stories and characters. The illustrations are bright and,although simply drawn, full of character and fun.
My 6 year old grandaughter loved this. A clever twist on traditional fairy stories with an original text. In good Nick Sharrat style things to lift out and flap. Can see this is going to be a family favourite.
