Tales from a Tall Forest

A deliciously clever and hilarious collection of mashed-up fairytales, with the mood of a Brothers Grimm tale, crossed with the sharp wit of The Princess Bride

A stunning elegant hardback gift edition, with 30 sublime black-and-white illustrations with spotcolour red throughout

When an innocent princess wanders into the forest, she finds herself trapped between a ravenous wolf with an appetite and a sweet little house with a secret.

Meanwhile, a desperate fisherman enters into a very bad bargain with a power-hungry monkey.

And meanerwhile still, a tiny tricksy tailor promises a promise that not even the most magic of beanstalks can help him escape.

In this rich and rambunctious tapestry of tales, satirist Shaun Micallef unravels the traditional fairy story and nimbly weaves your favourite characters into new and surprising adventures.

Illustrated by award-winning artist Jonathan Bentley, this subversively silly trilogy will captivate parents and children alike – and indignant fairy tale authors too.
