The Deep Dark Wood

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Orchard Books

A sweet little girl happily sets off to visit her best friend for tea through a deep dark wood full of lurking witches, trolls and giants. When a big bad wolf appears, you suspect you know where this might end! But think again! 

Thinking only of his tea, Wolf 'helps' her on her way, nobly protecting his unwitting prey from the ravages of aforementioned witches, trolls and giants. Things aren't looking good! But Sweet Little Girl's best friend is not quite what Wolf is expecting: suddenly the tables are turned!

Text and illustrations combine to create a witty balance between over-the-top terror (that wolf's eyes!) and down-to-earth humour, the feisty heroine wonderfully unruffled by anything, in this clever take on a familiar tale.
