An Ahlberg romp through fairyland in which Jeremiah Obadiah Jackenory Jones goes in search of the no-good robber who has stolen his grandma's tarts. Among those he meets up with are three bears, a sly wolf, the Mad Hatter, a frog prince and a sleeping beauty before he finally unmasks the culprit, Goldilocks. Sevens to nines will cope with the words and enjoy the funny drawings (not, though, especially well reproduced in my copy). But will they all catch the humour of this send-up of stock fairy story characters?
