Written by Ian Beck
Warm and funny stories which give the reader a new take on the traditional fairy tale
‘Ian Beck's prose has a crisp and springy rhythm - a treat to read aloud to anyone over the age of six. His illustrations, gnarled silhouettes, are marvellously complex . . . A volume to treasure.’
'a delightful book, and one with a wide potential audience . . . a story with a timeless quality and great charm for bedtime reading upwards.'
Marcus Sedgwick, The Literary Review
'Tom's quest to discover his own story and his courage unrolls through an elegantly described magical landscape, in this skilful, highly inventive story about the way stories work.'
