This large-format, picture storybook with lots of words comes with an excellent pedigree. Placed in the right hands in the primary school, its inventiveness and intriguing magic shouldn't fail to delight. Just a century old, it retains motifs from much earlier fairy fantasies, re-worked and embellished with fresh, masterly detail. The distinctively detailed full-colour illustrations are a feast for the eye and contribute to this highly successful production. Our 13-year-old, in-house, reluctant reader took it to bed and pronounced it good.
