MEDIA REVIEWS
Peep through the holes in this delightful fairytale adventure. * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide *
With its sturdy pages, enchanting illustrations and intriguing windows and peep-holes, this magical, colourful journey of surprises is destined to be every little girl's favourite. * Lancashire Evening Post *
An immediate repeat reading was demanded by my young audience who absolutely loved spotting the fairy tale characters in each of the places visited and spent ages looking at all the wonderful details in each spread. "Can you bring it again tomorrow," really says it all. A sure fire winner if ever there was one. * Red Reading Hub *
Jessica Ahlberg, daughter of Allan and Janet Ahlberg, creators of the classic The Jolly Postman, is following in the family tradition of producing beautiful books that children will want to treasure forever. A charming, offbeat story for all little fairytale fans. * Lancashire Evening Post *
Fairytales for Mr Barker provides just the right mix of cosines and humour to enchant a toddler. [...] this gentle tale contains plenty of references to familiar fairy tales, which toddlers will enjoy spotting, as well as detailed domestic scenes - small children will love opening the little doors to peep inside. * Oldie *
Jessica Ahlberg wittily transforms the fairy story [into] a very special kind of bedtime story. * Guardian *
It's a tale likely to send even the most timid child fast asleep with a face beaming with fun and reassurance. * Books for Keeps *
Each page is a delight to explore as the illustrations cleverly tell both the traditional tale and the current story in detail [...] A book to treasure. * The School Librarian *

“Enchanting”

A lovely book featuring some famous fairytales and peep-through holes. The illustrations are lovely and very detailed (some little bits of humour in them for the adults). Shame the peep holes are so small but... More
