Hear the villain's side of the story in this hilarious book of fairy tales by Pongwiffy author Kaye Umansky

Let's hear it for the witches, queens and stepmothers! Author Kaye Umansky's new book Fairy Tales: The Villain's' Version is full of must-have magic and wicked humour, as we finally hear the other side of our favourite fairy-tale stories. 



Fairy Tales: The Villain's Version
by Kaye Umansky (Barrington Stoke; artwork and vignettes by Linzie Hunter) is not your usual book of fairy tales. 

The Queen has had enough of silly, soppy Snow White being the fairest in the land.
Lardine and Angula are not at all impressed by their new stepsister, Ella. A curse involving a spindle goes terribly wrong for Grimbleshanks.
And Old Maggit just wants Hansel and Gretel to help her win Wickedest Witch in the world.

If you think you know the stories of Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Hansel and Gretel – think again! You’re about to hear the Villain’s Version…
