Ich kann also nur geringfügig vergrößern, wenn ich nicht ständig den Bildausschnitt hin und her schieben will. Having watched Konnie Huq talking about this book on TV I decided to purchase this as a present for my granddaughter.

As the longest serving female Blue Peter presenter, from 1997 to 2008, Konnie Huq is no stranger to the middle-grade market.From a rapping long-haired princess to an eco warrior mermaid (with a flatulating orange-faced angry little man along the way), just about every classic fairy tale has been reimagined for the world today. That might be a problem for Mouldysocks, who learns a lesson when his adventures in the Three Bears’ home leads to carnage. Packed with stories about boys who aren’t afraid to cry and rhymes about girls who refuse to kiss frogs, FEARLESS FAIRY TALES shakes up dusty, old-fashioned (and, to be honest, rather sexist) bedtime stories and totally reinvents them for the twenty-first century.

i bought this to read to my beaver colony but obviously had to test run it (after the mistake a few years ago thinking the harry potter fairy tale one would be suitable 🙈). 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. As ever Rikin Parekh’s pictures play up the ridicule, humour and imagination, as we’ve come to enjoy with his illustrations as in This Book Has Alpacas and Bears.Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. And would you like to laugh your socks off at those stories and the clever, colourful pictures that go with them? While traditional fairy tales undoubtedly have their place in children’s literature, this subversive and original collection tackles contemporary issues such as equal pay, knife crime, disability rights and fake news with great humour, intelligence and a fresh, exciting perspective. Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling.

This ‘ angry little man‘ has turned a near fluorescent orange as a result of his love of colouring and fast foods. When the latest trend to shoot peas comes around, Zareen is desperate fo show her new treasure to ‘ all her friends‘. Yet things are never what they seem in Fearless Fairy Tales, and Zareen’s encounter with the peashooter could lead to a fierce debate. Would you like to read classic stories that have something worthwhile to say about the world we live in today? I was at my last school for 4 years and we had ********* book fairs every term – and every term, I was disappointed by the narrow range of books.Or how about Trumplestiltskin, an angry, orange man with ridiculous hair who is obsessed with getting richer and richer? Fearless Fairy Tales has hints of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes and other clever revisiting of traditional tales.

From fake news to female footballers, environmental pollution to equal pay, nothing is off limits in this anthology of laugh-out-loud fairy tales with thoroughly modern morals. It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you.
