This hilarious split-page novelty book allows the reader to mix and match different combinations of fairy tales creating thousands of outlandish stories. Do you know the story of the ugly duckling who was bossed around by two horrid stepsisters and climbed a beanstalk at the top of which was a bowl of porridge? Or Snow White, who was laughed at by ducks and fell asleep in Baby Bear's bed after eating Little Red Riding Hood's granny? Illustrated by award-winner Nick Sharratt, this ingenious split-page book lets children create their own fractured fairy tales—and they may even find some surprisingly sensible ones along the way. Colorful, quirky, fun—a guaranteed giggle maker for kids and parents alike!
Hilary Robinson's previous book was The Princess's Secret Letters. Author-illustrator Nick Sharratt has won numerous awards for his picture books, including the Children's Book Award for Eat Your Peas; among his other books are Ahoy, Pirate Pete; and Shark in the Park.
