The Book Fairies partnered with MacMillan Publishers to release Once Upon A Wild Wood out in… the wild!
From Cornwall to Glasgow, London to West Lothian, these little children’s books were hidden in plain sight. Did you look for a book?
About the book:
Little Green Raincape is on her way to Rapunzel’s party, deep in the wild woods. The way is long and dark, but Green is a smart girl. Smart enough to turn down apples offered by kindly old ladies, smart enough to turn down travel advice from helpful wolves, and above all, smart enough to solve a wealth of classic fairy tale problems – not least mend a lovelorn beast’s broken heart.
Once Upon a Wild Wood is a richly imagined story packed full of familiar fairy tale characters as you’ve never seen them before. Including Red Riding Hood, Thumbelina, Rapunzel, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, the three bears, the seven dwarfs and many more!
A visual feast on every page, illustrated with warmth and humour and full of witty details to discover – this is Chris Riddell at his picture book best! 🌳
Not lucky enough to find a book fairy treat?
Don’t worry! Once Upon a Wild Wood is available in most good book shops, as well as on Hive Books here.
Would you like to become a Book Fairy?
It’s easy! If you love books as much as we do, and love the idea of making someone’s day when they find a book you’ve left, you’re in the right place! Just grab some stickers and maybe some other goodies, get a pile of books together to hide, and off you go! We cannot wait to see your books in the wild.
