5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A follow up to the bestselling The Great Nursery Rhyme Disaster.

Fairy tales have never been funnier than in this outrageously silly picture book!

Once upon a time there lived an old Big Bad Wolf. He no longer has any huff and puff to blow down the Three Little Pigs' houses so he scampers off into the pages of the Fairy Tale book to find a new one.

He tries one tale after another, but things never quite work to plan.

Will he find a fairy tale that suits him perfectly? With all the well-known and well-loved fairy tales, including Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. 'It's madness and mayhem which results in a very funny, laugh out loud book.' The Bookbag

Review by

Who doesn't love a great fairy tale adventure? The Great Fairy Tale Disaster has all the old favorites like the Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, jack and the Bean Stalk and even Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The Big Bad Wolf is tired of all the repeated shenanigans of the Three Little Pigs. In order to make a change he decides to visit some of the other fairy tales for a change of pace. Cinderella's Fairy God Mother tries to send him to the ball in a dress and glass slippers. Of course, that doesn't go over very well. Next up, he's afraid of the giant on the beanstalk. He isn't taking any kisses from the prince in Sleeping Beauty. Things start to get hairy for the Big Bad Wolf when he eats the porridge of The Three Bears.David Conway's creativity has generated a hilarious read for any young book lover. Cheerful illustrations and zany acts by the characters will engage young readers of all ages. Revisiting these classic tales open up a young child’s imagination to the possibility of creating their own fun endings.
