Once Upon a Wild Wood

Publisher: MacMillan Children’s Books

Review

A brand-new fairytale character, Little Green Rain Cape, sets off through the wild woods on her way to Rapunzel’s birthday party.

On the way, she meets and helps a host of beloved fairytale characters, from The Beast to the Seven Dwarves and the Three Little Pigs, in this mixed-up new fairytale.

A truly delightful picture book that children of all ages will love, especially slightly older children who have just learnt to read themselves (the book has quite a sophisticated air to it that will be appreciated by 6 and 7 year olds).

Chris Riddell’s beautiful illustrations will set children’s imaginations alight and the book closes with a hint that there might be further adventures...
