An Undone Fairy Tale
Top 10 Picture Books of 2005, US News and World Report
Now, Ned and I admire how well you read. But the story will be ruined if you turn the page right now.
So please don't.
A beautiful pie-making princess is trapped in a tower. Can Sir Wilbur rescue her? And more importantly, can he do it while wearing a tutu? He's going to try! But if you read the story too quickly, Ned won't be able to make the pictures or costumes in time. And happily-ever-after may start to go a bit haywire.
“Tremendously clever and hysterically funny.” –Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“This slapstick, madcap adventure will tickle many funny bones while offering readers a delightful (albeit deceptive) sense of control.”
“A fractured fairy tale of the silliest order.” – Booklist
