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.
Jamie is ready for his bedtime Story and, though Dad is doing the telling, Jamie would like to have a say in the story too. He wants it to have: "A Prince and a bear and a witch. And MORE bears." A wonderfully quirky fairytale follows, packed with Dad's (Hem...Hem...) Dad jokes and Jamie's creativity we all learn about the power we have as storytellers to help a tale take shape. A whole lot of fun. Best for ages 3-6. A staff pick of B at the Dorothy Butler Children's bookshop.
