This fantastic split page book allows the reader to mix and match different combinations of fairy tales with hilarious results. What would happen if Goldilocks had two horrid stepsisters and fell asleep for a hundred years? Would she be woken by a hungry wolf or Little Red Riding Hood's Granny?

'Youngsters who know their fairy tales should have great fun mixing and matching them.' The Children's Bookseller 'For very small children, no amount of visionary artwork can compete with the fun of lifting flaps. My son, aged three and a half, loved Hilary Robinson and Nick Sharratt's Mixed Up Fairy Tales'. Stephanie Merritt - observer Classic fairy stories have been re-told often but none so entertaining and unusual as Mixed Up Fairy Tales. Author Hilary Robinson and illustrator Nick Sharratt have created a classic fairy story book, but with an ingenious and captivating twist. Anyone, young or old, with an ounce of imagination and partial to fairy tales will love this book. www.writeaway.org.uk www.writeaway.org.uk ...good fun. Books for Keeps
