The villains are the stars of the show in these four hilarious fractured fairy tales from Kaye Umansky.
A curse involving a spindle goes terribly wrong for poor old Grimbleshanks. The Queen decides it’s time for silly, soppy Snow White to go. Lardine and Angula aren’t at all happy about having Ella for a stepsister. Old Maggit just wants to win the Wickedest Witch Contest with her house made of sweets.
This is Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel, re-told like they’ve never seen them before.
KAYE UMANSKY began life as a teacher turning to writing after the birth of her daughter. She is now the author of many well-loved books including Pass the Jam, Jim and Pongwiffy. 2018 marked the 20th anniversary of Pongwiffy. She is a marvellous performer of her own work and a jazz singer in her own time.
