Description - Tales From a Tall Forest by Shaun Micallef

Once upon a time being, forever and ever ago, there lived a forest tall of tales ...

When an innocent princess wanders into the forest, she finds herself trapped between a wolf with a ravenous 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 fairytale authors too.

More grim than Grimms', less soppy than Aesop.

Author Biography - Shaun Micallef

Shaun Micallef is a comedian, writer, actor, producer, author and former child. He is usually found on TV in shows such as Thank God You're Here, Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation and Mad as Hell. He has authored three books for adults: Smithereens, Preincarnate and The President's Desk. Tales from a Tall Forest is his first book for children. When Jonathan Bentley was eight years old, he realised he wouldn't be good enough to play football for Leeds United - so he concentrated on drawing instead. He is now one of Australia's most treasured illustrators, and his award-winning picture books - including A House of Her Own, Pink and Where is Bear? - have been published all over the world.
