Description

This is the deep dark wood. Everyone knows it's no place to go for a stroll. There are monsters and trolls and giants everywhere, not to mention the Big Bad Wolf!

Wait a minute! What's that sweet little girl doing in the deep dark wood? Doesn't she know it's DANGEROUS here? The Big Bad Wolf will gobble her up for his lunch!

But this deep dark wood is full of twists and turns, and all is not quite what it seems. The Big Bad Wolf is about to get a big, bad surprise...

A monstrously funny mixed-up fairytale with an unexpected twist!

Review quote

This is a darkly funny book which teaches us not to take everything at face value * Carousel * Satisfyingly scary for the young reader...The text is a joy to read aloud, the illustrations and page layout imaginative, and just scary enough to engage but not overwhelm the young reader. A picture book for many young readers to treasure * The School Librarian * Neatly told with lots of brilliant read-aloud bits. * Read it Daddy * For every kid who loves a bit of a thrill laced with humour, this is perfect. * Books for Keeps * Takes a well worn premise and reinvigorates it, executing it with imagination and flair. A real delight. * Peters Gazette *
