Book of the month: Fairytales for Mr Barker by Jessica Ahlberg

"Once upon a time, there was a troll," says Lucy. 
But Mr Barker isn't listening. 
He's off on his own fairytale adventure. 
Who will he and Lucy meet and will their story end happily ever after?

If you're going to buy one new book for your little one's bookshelf this month, we think it should be Fairytales for Mr Barker. This INCREDIBLY beautiful new picture book by Jessica Ahlberg will have your little ones pouring over the detailed illustrations again and again, spotting all the little details from their favourite fairytales. Peep through the holes on each page and spot all your favourite characters like the Three Bears, the Three Little Pigs and Sleeping Beauty!

This delightful fairytale adventure is by Jessica Ahlberg, daughter of Allan and Janet Ahlberg – creators of the classic The Jolly Postman, Peep and Each, Peach, Pear Plum. It has all the warmth and cosiness of a classic fairytale, plus a pinch of humour, a dash of surprise and a cast of characters that will take you on an adventure your kids will want to go on again and again.
