There's been a robbery in Tale Town! Someone has stolen a cutting from the magical Story Tree, and it's up to twins Hansel and Gretel to get it back. With the help of their new friend Wolfie, a not very big or very bad wolf, they discover a secret fortress in the forest, containing a Magic Looking Glass that promises to help them.

But things are not always what they seem, especially when the Magic Looking Glass starts causing trouble! Can Wolfie and the twins find the Story Tree cutting and save the day, or will the Magic Looking Glass have the last laugh?

The Magic Looking Glass is the fourth book in this brilliant new highly-illustrated series by Tom Percival, featuring all the fairy-tale characters you know and love having brand-new adventures!



This is a fantastic little story. I love the way that the story weaves in different fairytale characters and introduces them to the reader in a way that they may have not seen them before. Children will also love the whole idea of a Story Tree. It is a magical story which makes you want to read all the books in the series. I had trouble putting this book down and I am sure children will too. Great concept and a wonderful story. 176 pages / Ages 6-8 years / Reviewed by Beth Grant, school librarian.

Suggested Reading Age 7+
