About the book

A girl opens a book looking for the story that's perfect for HER and tumbles inside. But Goldilocks is not her story, and nor is Jack and the Beanstalk or Little Red Riding Hood... There is only one thing for it: she is going to have to write her own story - and this time, SHE will be the hero. A celebration of the stories we ALL love and the stories we are yet to write.
