The Deep Dark Wood

The Deep Dark Wood

This is the deep dark wood. Everyone knows it’s no place to go for a stroll. There are monsters and trolls and giants everywhere, not to mention the Big Bad Wolf!

Wait a minute! What’s that sweet little girl doing in the deep dark wood? Doesn’t she know it’s DANGEROUS here? The Big Bad Wolf will gobble her up for his lunch!

But this deep dark wood is full of twists and turns, and all is not quite what it seems. The Big Bad Wolf is about to get a big, bad surprise…

A monstrously funny mixed-up fairytale with an unexpected twist!

Read it Daddy
Satisfyingly scary for the young reader...The text is a joy to read aloud, the illustrations and page layout imaginative, and just scary enough to engage but not overwhelm the young reader. A picture book for many young readers to treasure
The School Librarian
This is a darkly funny book which teaches us not to take everything at face value
