Deep in the enchanted forest, the fairy tale creatures all have problems. Luckily they can call on the ultimate agony aunt - Dear Fairy Godmother!

A sequel to Dear Mother Goose, this is a hilarious collection of fairy stories with a difference. All the best-loved fairy-tale characters are here and they all have a different problem, from the pesky girl who keeps eating little bear's porridge, to Pinocchio's mendacious habits, to the wolf who just won't leave Little Red Riding Hood alone. Along with their letters asking for advice comes the scene with the problem - then lift the flap and see Fairy Godmother's ingenious solutions to their predicaments! Wittily illustrated by Nick Sharratt, with a very funny text from Michael Rosen, this is a novelty book full of unexpected solutions - and a party at the end!

  • Fantastic author and illustrator team reunited after Dear Mother Goose.
  • Simple lift-the-flap novelty elements put to brilliant effect.
  • A brilliantly funny spin on some traditional fairy tales.

          Comments about Dear Fairy Godmother:

          This lift the flap book has a series of letters to the fairy godmother from fairytale favourites like the gingerbread man, little red riding hood and the three little pigs. It is funny, but the humour definitely went over the head of my 4 year old. Perhaps better aimed at an 8 year old?
