Review quote

With very large text and bright colourful illustrations it will remind children of the traditional rhymes, stir imaginations, and spark smiles. Hilarious! Carousel For Email Jesus @ Bethlehem 'Lively without being irreverent.' - The Bookseller 'A thoughtful and heartfelt survey.' - TES 'Just what the modern child should have' - Marianne Adey, Co-Ordinator Children's Book Award Classic fairy tales have been re-told often but none so entertaining and unusual as Mixed Up Fairy Tales...Whilst familiarising young children with classic fairy stories...it also introduces the endless imaginative possibilities of writing. Children (and adults) will be enraptured from the first page. Sharratt's bright and bold illustrations bring alive the characters in this book making it accessible and involving. Children will want to revisit this book time and again to discover new stories...the possibilities appear endless. Gayle Morison Ingenious, imaginative fun. Bookseller Our most-loved nursery rhymes can be mixed up with hilarious consequences, thanks to this sequel to the best-selling Mixed Up Fairy Tales. Coventry Telegraph Variations enough for plenty of delightfully silly combinations. The Guardian Endless fun... hilarious. Parents in Touch Another clever delight... a fun book that would make a great present... ample material to stimulate children's imaginations. Mixed Up Nursery Rhymes
