Roxy & Jones: The Curse of the Gingerbread Witch

By Angela Woolfe

A hilarious modern fairy-tale mash-up set in a world in which witches are real, magic is real and fairy tales are not only real ... but recent history.

Roxy Humperdinck is still reeling from the Great Fairy Tale Cover-up when Cinderella Jones returns with a new mission: to investigate The Missing – the children who followed the Pied Piper into the mountain thirty years ago, never to be seen again. And so begins another crazy adventure that takes the girls up Jack’s beanstalk, through Red Riding Hood’s Woods … and to the cottage of the most evil villain of all time, the Gingerbread Witch.

  • Shrek meets Once Upon a Time meets The Princess Bride, for fans of Michelle Harrison and Dominique Valente.
  • A hilarious adventure story featuring two sassy heroines, some GOOD magic, some BAD magic and a LOT of fairytale characters. Full of clever storytelling and sharp, witty dialogue, perfect for smart readers of 9+.
  • Praise for Roxy and Jones: The Great Fairytale Cover-Up: "With strong themes of friendship, family and magic this exciting, witty adventure thriller will have you hooked from the first page. Characters are larger than life, the plot is original and unpredictable and the writing is very, very funny." BookTrust
