It's just an ordinary day at Mother Goose's Academy. There's Miss Good Fairy teaching the Three Little Pigs, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood to read and write - while Miss Bad Fairy is inciting the Ugly Sisters, the Big Bad Wolf, Troll, Wicked Stepmother, Wicked Witch and Jealous Queen to gobble them all up. The result? Chaos! Witty, fast-paced and anarchic, this is a complete story with ten short chapters ('C.A.T. Spells Dog', 'What Troll Learned', 'Snakes and Snails for Lunch') that take us through the school day. Originally published as Big Class, Little Class, this freshly illustrated reissue brings Francesca Simon and Tony Ross together again in a wonderful romp that Horrid Henry fans will revel in.

...Francesca Simon's fairytale school story is feisty and funny, blending the familiar with original additions into an entertaining whole". -- Julia Eccleshare The Guardian (Review), Saturday April 16th 2005 "A hilarious tale of mischief and magic for children". -- Sam Wostear The Sun, Friday April 15th, 2005 Imagine all your favourite fairy-tale characters at school together... the result is a hilarious book that brings to life classic fairytale characters. ...a perfect first-reader... MyBooksMag, Issue 12 (Summer 2005) offbeat school story with a twist ...For young readers who like to read about familiar storybook characters venturing outside their familiar surroundings, the quick-fire dialogue, whacky happenings and slapstick humour will appeal greatly. Ross's animated eye-balling line drawings wittily capture the various lesson activities, and his page by page casting of characters is done with characteristic energy and flourish. -- Gwynneth Bailey Books For Keeps 'A hilarious book by the author of the Horrid Henry series. The funny and mischievous humour is perfect for 5-7 year olds to read themselves' FAMILY INTEREST MAGAZINE 'Fairy tale characters play wicked games of 'goodie' and 'baddie' creating chaos for their teachers.' -- Robert Dunbar IRISH TIMES 10.12.05 'one of the funniest books I have ever read... really wicked in every sense of the word.' -- Karen Hart CHINGFORD GUARDIAN
