Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The team behind THE RUNAWAY DINNER reverses direction in this clever pastiche of fairy tales in which everyone lives happily ever . . . before.

"Jack was running like mad in the dark woods with a hen under his arm.

Previously, he had stolen the hen and climbed down a beanstalk."

But do you know what was Jack doing before he climbed down the beanstalk?

Or what Jack and Jill were arguing about before they went up the hill? And what happened before that? Every story, every person, and every thing started somewhere, and now the inventive and whimsical Allan Ahlberg explores what all your favorite storybook characters were up to previously, aided by Bruce Ingmans energetic illustrations.

Synopsis:

The team behind "The Runaway Dinner" reverses direction in this clever pastiche of fairy tales in which everyone lives happily ever . . . before. Full color.

This book is classified as Children's Humor and perhaps rightly so. However, this book is way more than merely that. While every child will love it, the parent or grandparent who is doing the reading will love it too.

More importantly, every Children's Book Writer or Illustrator will wish they'd thought of this wonderful idea!!
