Fairytale about siblings
on 13 September 2017
A fairytale about a brother and sister called Rose and Jack who do not get along at all. Rose enjoys being at home whereas the brother likes to be out with his friends and playing football. The pair argue all the time and their mother gets fed up and tells them to go out together and return by lunchtime.
They go off together and Jack runs ahead into a tunnel and Rose eventually follows him after she becomes worried that he is taking too long. She finds him and so the story goes a little strange.
It has a happy ending and they go back home and when the mother asks them why they are so quiet and if everything is alright. They smile at each other knowing about their adventure but don't tell their mother. Their adventure seems to bring the siblings closer to each other.
Walker Publishers sent me a copy of this book which was one of the books in a set by author Anthony Browne.
