Magic Beans: A Handful of Fairytales from the Storybag
Magic beans. Sow them. Plant them. Watch children grow. 'If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!' (Shel Silverstein, Poet). Each and every one of the stories in this anthology is a magic bean: a wondrous tale that will capture your imagination. Prepare to be dazzled by "Rapunzel's" golden tresses. Prepare to be moved by the suffering of the "Little Mermaid". Prepare to laugh yourself silly as 'Mr Sultana' struggles to get the better of a little red rooster! Lovingly crafted by the finest authors and illustrators, these 'magic beans' will delight, thrill and thoroughly entertain.
Beautiful retellings of favourite fairytales by the best-loved writers for children.
