Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time being, forever and ever ago, there lived a forest tall of tales...? When an innocent princess wanders into the forest, she finds herself trapped between a wolf with a ravenous appetite and a sweet little house with a secret. Meanwhile, a desperate fisherman enters into a very bad bargain with a power-hungry monkey. And meanerwhile still, a tiny tricksy tailor promises a promise that not even the most magic of beanstalks can help him escape.

In this rich and rambunctious tapestry of tales, satirist Shaun Micallef unravels the traditional fairy story and nimbly weaves your favourite characters into new and surprising adventures. Including a PDF illustrated by award-winning artist Jonathan Bentley, this subversively silly trilogy will captivate parents and children alike - and indignant fairy tale authors too. More grim than Grimms', less soppy than Aesop.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.
