Reviews

"...Francesca Simon's fairytale school story is feisty and funny, blending the familiar with original additions into an entertaining whole". -- Julia Eccleshare The Guardian (Review), Saturday April 16th 2005 "A hilarious tale of mischief and magic for children". -- Sam Wostear The Sun, Friday April 15th, 2005 "Imagine all your favourite fairy-tale characters at school together... the result is a hilarious book that brings to life classic fairytale characters. ...a perfect first-reader..." MyBooksMag, Issue 12 (Summer 2005) offbeat school story with a twist ...For young readers who like to read about familiar storybook characters venturing outside their familiar surroundings, the quick-fire dialogue, whacky happenings and slapstick humour will appeal greatly. Ross's animated eye-balling line drawings wittily capture the various lesson activities, and his page by page casting of characters is done with characteristic energy and flourish. -- Gwynneth Bailey Books For Keeps 'A hilarious book by the author of the Horrid Henry series. The funny and mischievous humour is perfect for 5-7 year olds to read themselves' FAMILY INTEREST MAGAZINE 'Fairy tale characters play wicked games of 'goodie' and 'baddie' creating chaos for their teachers.' -- Robert Dunbar IRISH TIMES 10.12.05 'one of the funniest books I have ever read... really wicked in every sense of the word.' -- Karen Hart CHINGFORD GUARDIAN
