Product description

Review

'Exuberant illustrations and quirkly humorous rhyming couplets tell a tale of a girl whose fate lies in her own hands, rather than Prince Charming’s… adults are bond to love this as much as the children they are reading it to.’  

(EYE)

with bouncy verse and fun illustrations, this is a delightful book’ 

(Irish Examiner)

' From the first time we read it it has become one of my daughter’s favourites and she asks me to read it to her every day, partly because she loves the illustrations and partly because of the interactions that take place in the book and the way that the story develops.'   

(Juno)

"This really is a fabulous book, which manages to deal with some very current themes, and show a great deal of diversity too, while remaining utterly charming and child-friendly. Definitely one that will enchant all ages."

(Armadillo)

'A fantastic picture book, with all kinds of wonderful messages.'

(One Upon A Bookshelf)

‘It does what is says on the tin, in what the Americans call a "fractured fairy tale" beautifully illustrated by a debut artist Rebecca Ashdown.’

(Mary Hoffman Bookbrunch)

Sick of Disney princes and the happy ever after myth? Then this is the book for you! Making librarians everywhere smile a little wider this is a fun fairy tale, re-told.

(The Book Bag)

"This is how every fairy tale should be written, with the protagonist - regardless of gender - saving themselves from a life of solitude and boredom. The rhymes are peppered with repetition making them fun to read aloud and easy for young readers to remember. The bright, colourful illustrations are superb, filled with endless details that tell stories of their own. A great read."

(Booktrust)
