Matt Buckingham has illustrated the new Fairy Tale Twists series of books written by Katie Dale. The Not-So-Evil Stepmother and The Wickedest Witch are published this month by Orchard Books. The rhyming story takes a familiar fairytale character and reveals their version of events – as you’ve never seen them before! Each book is packed full of Matt’s hilarious illustrations, here are just a few to be getting on with.
In fairy tales we often find
that stepmothers are so unkind.
But listen, folks, that’s just not true -
here’s a different tale for you…
The Wickedest Witch
The Wicked Witch is scary, right?
She’ll wave her wand, give you a fright?
Don’t be so speedy to agree -
she’s pretty cool…just wait and see!
