Roxy & Jones: The Great Fairytale Cover Up

Publisher: Walker Books

It all started when Roxy Humperdinck was cleaning her teeth. If she hadn’t noticed the slip of paper, hadn’t pulled it free from the bath panel and hadn’t broken said panel, she would never have ended up in the cold, dark labyrinth of corridors below the Ministry for Soup.

Furthermore, if Roxy had not broken the bath panel, she’d never have met a girl dressed as a buttercup named Jones, or got her hands on the ancient book that meant she had to spend a night in the Decontamination Zone.

In fact, as someone who was most definitely not looking for any kind of adventure, Roxy finds herself right in the middle of a hugely secret and dangerous quest to expose the truth about the Ministry and prevent a wicked witch from taking over the world.

With strong themes of friendship, family and magic this exciting, witty adventure thriller will have you hooked from the first page. Characters are larger than life, the plot is original and unpredictable and the writing is very, very funny. 

This is a great read for anyone who has fond memories of the traditional fairy tales... and would not be surprised to find out that they are all entirely true!
