Roxy & Jones: The Curse of the Gingerbread Witch

Binding: Paperback

Imprint: Walker Books

Age 9+

Humorous Stories Folklore, Myths & Legends Fantasy & Magical Realism

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.


Angela Woolfe is the author of the Avril Crump trilogy as well as a series of magical adventures for younger readers under the pseudonym Emerald Everheart. She is married with one young daughter, who is even more obsessed with fairy tales than she is. Angela lives in Wimbledon.


I like this book because it’s extremely funny. […] I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes comedy or fantasy books.
