My children insisted on buying this book to add to their fast growing library of Lauren Child's work. All the anarchic hilarity and wonderful artwork we have come to expect is here, in a wonderful story of a child entering a world of muddled fairy tales. I have to say that from an adult point of view, the book is, perhaps, a little too similar to some of her earlier work, particularly Beware of Story Book Wolves. Some of this is deliberate - the Little Wolf appears, still dressed for Cinderella's ball. But overall, we found this title perhaps less original. If this had been our first Lauren Child book, we would probably have been more unreservedly charmed. The children, however, love it, which is the important thing!
