Description

A brand-new board book edition, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this fractured fairy tale bedtime story

In this hilarious fractured fairy tale romp, everything goes awry. Goldilocks lives with the seven dwarfs, a princess kisses Humpty Dumpty, and she and the prince rescue the Wicked Witch of the West! Can all this mischief get sorted out so that everyone lives happily ever after? Jean Little and Maggie de Vries's playful text and Phoebe Gilman's magical illustrations make this twisted classic a delight to share with new generations of readers.
