The Princess and the Wizard by Julia Donaldson (Macmillan Children’s Books, £6.99)

This is another fine fairytale story which capsizes the stereotype of the damsel in distress. The wicked Wizard kidnaps and locks Princess Eliza in the cellar of a dark castle. What can she do? Eliza, with the help of some magic, can change her shape and colour seven times. She’ll also need great thinking power to trick the Wizard and escape from his clutches. A gorgeously glittery book which is a great way to learn about shapes and colours too.

Discuss this story

Fairy is cute and they close to little girls. They never make them afraid and all the time try to help human beings. My grandmother used to tell me a lot of quality essay stories about fairies and used to tell me so beautiful fairytales. The world of fairytales is also another amazing world to enjoy.
