Inventive and amusing twists on classic fairy tales, told by top authors
Chicken Tricken loves to play tricks! He is very good at tricking Goosey Loosey and Ducky Lucky out of their food. But what happens when he comes across the hungry fox?
Hopscotch Twisty Tales combine carefully controlled text levels and word counts with highly entertaining and original stories, perfect for children 5-7 year olds starting to read independently.
Dawn was born in in Sussex and now lives in Gloucestershire with her two teenage daughters and lots of furry pets. In 2008 she did an MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University, which was 100% fab. In the past, she has worked as a bereavement counsellor, a copywriter, a teaching assistant and a children's bookseller - but her best job has always been being a mummy. Dawn likes dancing to bad 80s songs, going for rainy walks, eating green soup, snoozing by her log-burner, and writing in cafes. (PS: Never challenge Dawn to a water fight cos you'll lose).
