Recently, the lovely people at My Little Big Town gave us the opportunity to review the set of Twisted Tales – and very good they are too! Each tale is written by Calvin Innes in poetry form (my kinda guy!) and would really appeal to any children from the ages of 6 – 12 years old. The illustrations are also eye-catching, rather quirky and drawn by the author himself. Twisted Tales are gruesome, a little bit weird and a little bit scary!
Calvin Innes is well known for his childrens books and has worked with the likes of the RSPB, London Zoo, Sony and Cadburys to name but a few.
First in the collection of his books we were given is Stuart The Bug Eating Man. He has an unusual taste for all things creepy and all things crawly and it talks about how his bug eating escapades get him where he needs to be in life – even though his family don’t quite share his love for all things bug!
Then there is the book Jenny. Jenny is no ordinary little girl, she has a secret. By day she may seem like a normal eight-year-old but by night she is in fact werewolf hunter. She doesn’t like girly, instead she loves all things scary and spooky.
And finally, we have Pale Henry, probably my favourite in the collection of Twisted Tales. He lives his life locked away in an attic – away from the other children who he is afraid of and, as a result, is sickly and pale. This book encourages children to make an effort to make friends and play with other children. It’s a book which encourages children to be themselves – no matter what others think of them.
Would you like the chance to win all three of these Twisted Tales? If so, then all you need to do is complete the Rafflecopter giveaway below.
