In The Girl Who Cried Wolf, we meet the demanding and cheeky Princess Arabella, who declares she is bored of living in the castle. She decides to swap roles with Tom, the lowly shepherd boy, as she thinks his job seems much more fun ... An hilarious tale of overturned stereotypes and role reversals, this imaginatively fractured fairy tale delivers an important message while offering an entertaining, accessible story. And from that day on, whenever Arabella was tempted to tell a lie, she thought of the terrifying dragon... and instead told the truth ...

I love this series, which takes well-known fairy stories and gives them a new twist to appeal to today's young readers and give them a whole new meaning. Meet Princess Arabella, who declares she is bored of living in the castle. She decides to swap roles with Tom, the lowly shepherd boy, as she thinks his job seems much more fun. A shocked Tom is sent off to the castle, whilst Arabella looks after the sheep. However, it isn't long before she is bored of this job too, and decides to play a trick on the townsfolk. And we all know what happened! This refreshing new spin on the traditional story highlighting the importance of telling the truth will be thoroughly enjoyed by young readers and the excellent illustrations bring it right up to date.
