What’s that at the door?

It’s a story!  A story by gosh and by gum.

I can see from its nose and its whiskers.

I can see from its tail and its tum.*


Six tales of rollicking good humour taken from the world of once upon a time and set in the land of here.  The illustrations by Francis Blake are just what I wanted -- quirky and witty and dancing off the page.


A perfect read-aloud, deliciously tempting to early readers. 

Meet Jesper, the youngest son, who tricks the lumber baron,

Meet Jamilla in her quest to find fear,

Meet Jane who sends the genie off into the distance yelling. 

Meet Jacinthe who travels to the underworld chasing -- guess what?

A fart. 


Reviewer Joanne Findon wrote in Quill and Quire,“Experienced readers will recognize familiar motifs while kids will guffaw.”  Three cheers!  Just what I was aiming at!
