The Prince and the Witch and the Thief and the Bears (Hardcover)
An action-packed adventure that will inspire parents and children to embark on their very own storytelling journeys together.
When Jamie and his Dad create a bedtime story, a predictable fairy tale soon transforms into an energetic, hilarious story of bears and princes jostling with broccoli-wielding frogs, evil-eyed ninja witches and jewel thief princesses. It’s a clever form that makes for some very funny moments, allowing us to see the characters respond to Jamie’s alterations as they flit through multiple costume changes and plot twists.
The story presents a challenge to the kinds of gender stereotypes often found in fairy tales, and the book’s diverse cast of characters is a testament to our multicultural society.
“Silly bedtime fun.”
-- Kirkus Reviews
"This book is a RIOT. ...a laugh-out loud story of a prince who sets out to rescue a princess – who doesn’t need rescuing, THANK YOU VERY MUCH... Big, expressive eyes, little nuances like the story’s characters showing up as toys in Jamie’s room, and wink/nudge moments throughout the storytelling make this artwork and story a great marriage."
