Twisted Tales, Richard Tulloch

You will never read a fairy tale the same way after you read this hilarious collection of six stories told by the so-called villains, innocent bystanders and other victims of fairytale crime.

A kind and friendly but very hungry wolf, a lizard who is horrified to be turned into a footman (whatever that is), a grumpy princess who can't sleep, a slightly deaf king, a witch who runs the Happy Healthy Holiday Home, and a cow whose ploppies turn out to be magic after all …

These stories have to be read to be appreciated! Just like in Beastly Tales, here we have Richard Tulloch writing at his best for younger readers: he's a master of turning a story on its head to create something completely new. Quirky, funny, and full of rhyming, alliteration and word play that will captivate beginner readers, Twisted Tales is a collection of stories that will delight parents and young children.
