The Prince and the Witch and the Thief and the Bears

By Alastair Chisholm
Illustrated by Jez Tuya

An action-packed storytelling adventure that flips the traditional fairy tale on its head.

When it’s time for Jamie’s bedtime story, his Dad begins to tell an age-old fairy tale about a prince in a faraway land full of dragons, wolves and princesses in distress. But inquisitive Jamie can’t help but add to his dad’s story, and the prince is soon joined by an evil-eyed witch who turns people to jelly, a broccoli-wielding ninja frog and a jewel-thief, lock picking princess. It may not be the story Dad set out to tell, but together, he and Jamie create something much more energetic and hilarious than they could have alone.

  • An inspiration for parents and children to embark on their very own storytelling adventures.
  • With hilarious twists and turns on every page, this is a story that will keep children guessing and laughing until the very end.
  • Jez’s richly textured bold and bright artwork has huge commercial appeal and is packed with lots of comical details that are a joy to find.
