The best thing about it is that it seems to have the right number of word per page. It's on par with "I really want to eat a child" (another modern classic), slightly fewer than the Gruffalo but more words and plot than "That's not my...". So there's no skipping lines because the pictures have got boring. And there's usually enough story in the pictures that if there are too few words, you can talk about the pictures as well. My toddler is already quoting it we've read it so often and the whole book in one sitting is not an arduous task. Maybe not the best bedtime read as it can be a little exciting but there's the "bedtime" edition in this series for that.
The illustrations are amusing, bright watercolours which appeal to little minds and the fairy tales have been re-worked to bring them up to date. The stories have been kept simple so are perfect for reading aloud. There's not too much text in each page and there is plenty of scope for putting your own word around the illustrations too.
Thoroughly recommend this to anyone who has the pleasure of reading out loud to little ones!
