About this deal

Packed with stories about boys who aren't afraid to cry and rhymes about girls who refuse to kiss frogs, this collection shakes up dusty, old-fashioned (and, to be honest, rather sexist) bedtime stories and totally reinvents them for the 21st century. When the latest trend to shoot peas comes around, Zareen is desperate fo show her new treasure to ‘ all her friends‘. If you're worried that your children experience a lack of female role models in the worlds of science, politics, the arts, history, sport and technology, worry no more! Hotjar sets this cookie to know whether a user is included in the data sampling defined by the site's daily session limit. Meet Trumplestiltskin , a vain and gold-obsessed little man who will stop at nothing to become richer and richer.

There’s Sleeping Brainy, the princess whose only dream is to become Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Gingerbread Kid, who escapes persecution in his home country but struggles to fit in in his new one.This ‘ angry little man‘ has turned a near fluorescent orange as a result of his love of colouring and fast foods. There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. However, I’m not sure how you might feel about reading that Mouldysocks loved playing games such as Mario Fart, (there is liberal use of the word throughout the tales which many will feel is playing for cheap laughs) and whilst you might secretly smile at Trumplestiltskin with its thinly veiled dig at a certain American President, you might also be concerned about sharing your views so liberally. Here we have Sleeping Brainy, Mouldysocks and the Three Bears, Jack and the Baked Beanstalk……you probably get the picture. Inhaltlich ganz nett, lässt sich auf dem Kindle sehr schlecht lesen - dass es s/w ist, war klar, dass sich aber die Schriftgrösse nicht ohne Komplettvergrößerung der Seite bewerkstelligen lässt, hatte ich nicht erwartet. Whilst my four-year-old enjoyed being read to, I think children aged 8+ (or whenever they're confident readers) will get the most from the book.You guys are such a force for good and I am a passionate supporter of Indie booksellers, so I'm so happy this worked out well (I'd love to know how many books were sold if you have it to hand - it felt like quite a lot!

year old loves story, 4 year old daughter not so much as she is a full on princess and prefares me reading Barbie.

Would you like to read classic stories that have something worthwhile to say about the world we live in today? Or perhaps you’d enjoy Jack and the Baked Bean Stalk who awakened from a Trumplestiltskin nightmare to discover a slimy orange plant climbing up to the sky? The stories are short enough to be read aloud to a class, and older children will no doubt enjoy the play on words and the disrupted versions of well-known fairy tales. Furthermore, his love of gold and power has him locking Marla and the king into the ‘deepest dungeon’.
