Review From the Father Reading Every Day book review (

"Book of the Week!"

"This is a charming story that will provide much satisfaction to all of the people disappointed by the sudden ending of the traditional tale! The story is written in rhyme which has been well crafted, adding pace and humour to the story. We also really loved the illustrations which are crammed with little details and full of animals (from ants carrying gingerbread crumbs to dogs fishing!)."

"Perfect for reading with children 3 and up who will instantly recognise the characters and engage with them. A lovely read which works perfectly well as a standalone (on the off chance that you haven't read/heard/seen a version of the original) and which also adds to the original in a way that feels natural, extending the story."
