Description

This is a lively collection of nineteen five-minute stories - a mix of old and new, from Perrault's "Little Red Riding Hood" and the traditional tale of "The Gingerbread Man", to Margaret Mahy's "Horrendous Hullabaloo" and Dick King-Smith's "Blessu". There are stories about animals, magic and mermaids - and much more too in this very special book, illustrated in full colour throughout by Steven Cox.

Review Text

A wonderfully lively collection of traditional nursery stories like 'The Gingerbread Man' and 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff', and modern flights of fancy like 'A Thousand Yards of Sea' by Adele Geras and 'The Horrendous Hullabaloo' by Margaret Mahy. It is a rich source from which to pick bedtime stories, amusingly illustrated and well designed. (4-7 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
