A treasury of fairy tales with a difference – feminist, sparky and set in different decades of the 20th century, with funky clothes and recognisable settings. A stunning collaboration between the brilliant illustrator David Roberts and his talented writer sister Lynn.
This special collection includes:
These are all deliciously, delightfully different takes on the fairy tales we all know.
'David Roberts’s bold, cartoonish illustrations perfectly complement these three fun-filled stories, where a new setting and time period influence each adventure.'
'Deliciously, delightfully different takes on the fairy tales we all know.'
'Offers a fabulously illustrated, delightful twist on some traditional fairy stories. Well worth a read!'
'Certainly lives up to its title! … The illustrations are particularly nice!'
'David Roberts’ illustrations are fabulously detailed and provide an amazing insight into life in three very distinctive eras ... highly entertaining ... We love all three stories.'
'One of the most stylish collections of fairy tales I’ve ever seen – David Roberts’ stunning illustrations whisk us back to bygone eras, whilst Lynn Roberts-Maloney’s sparkling text transforms some of our most beloved stories ... Packed with amazing period details and subtle twists, this is a volume to be treasured.'
'With spellbinding storytelling and detailed illustrations, these are utterly original in their portrayals of heroines (we think) we know so well ... Full of retro charm, these fresh retellings will be adored by new generations and their... retro parents!'
'With an unusual twist to well-known tales, this is a beautiful book to buy your little ones!'
The Teacher Bookworm
'The stories are zingy and fun with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humour: perfect... to remind us that girls can rescue themselves and have a lot of fun doing it.'
'David Robert’s detailed illustrations set them in distinct time periods ... The text created by his sister Lyn Roberts-Maloney redresses the handsome prince v powerless female narrative and there’s a rich vein of humour'
