This is a really lovely book, which shows that Jessica Ahlberg is as talented as her parents.

It is a very witty original story about a little girl named Lucy whose dog, Mr Barker, runs away as she tries to read him a fairy tale. Lucy runs after him and finds herself in adventures with Goldilocks, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Sleeping Beauty. 

My daughters really enjoy this book. They love peeping through to see what's coming next and they love shouting out what fairy tale Lucy has landed in. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed this book, and the peepholes were very clever!  We did feel a bit sorry for the little troll at the end, though!
