Summary

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. This is a wonderful romp that Horrid Henry fans will revel in.

Critic reviews

"[Simon Russell Beale's] Big Bad Wolf is growlier than Marlon Brando, and his Jealous Queen more languorous than a casting-couch seductress. Inviting mimicry, too, are the snorts of the three little pigs and the lip-smacking 'yumyumyum' of the nasty but dim Troll." ( Daily Telegraph)

Don't cook, you'll doze off

A lively performance and great voice but the story is a little boring... Good for sending the kids to sleep!

Fantastic

What did you like most about Don't Cook Cinderella?

Very entertaining story, narration is hilarious, so well done. Best kids audio book so far.

What other book might you compare Don't Cook Cinderella to, and why?

None, this is better than the rest, my 5 year old and I love this.

What does Simon Russell Beale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Everything, the narration is fabulous, I especially like his ability to narrate so well.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

This on film would give the Gruffalo a run for its money.

Any additional comments?

Best audio book so far, love the Gruffalo etc but dislike the voices on the narrating, I just can't bear to listen to them, this is excellent.
