The story of a boy who fell into a book . . . with a guest appearance from the Little Bad Wolf. From Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

Now if you were going to fall into a book, a book of fairy tales would probably not be your first choice. Because in every story there is always a wicked this, an evil that or a hungry somebody. It could only happen to Herb, child star of that thrilling tale, Beware of the Storybook Wolves.

Equally loved by children young and old, this brilliantly original picture book is perfect for sharing together. From the creator of the award-winning, bestselling Charlie and Lola series. Open it if you dare!
