This is a beautifully written and illustrated  tale with a fresh and lively re-imagining of this old folk story, by Jessica Souhami. She is an excellent storyteller and artist, using bold colours and characters that leap through the pages.

Published in August 2018, by Otter-Barry Books, this book will make an excellent buy for home and nursery, ages 3-5 years.
