The creators of FAIRYTALE NEWS mix up favorite tales in a comical quest with a pull-out treasure map.
Little Jack Hubbard can't wait to set sail with Cap'n Horatio Hubbard on a hunt for long-lost treasure. But the ship's wolfish crew are suspiciously big and bad, and soon Jack is diving into the waves to rescue a valuable treasure map. All seems lost until Jack is saved by the Owl and the Pussycat (in a beautiful pea-green boat) and passes a witch's gingerbread cottage, where two kids are caught in a culinary plot. . . . With the help of a handy removable map, readers will happily follow Jack's path to the treasure through a fractured-fairytale land.
Colin and Jacqui Hawkins, creators of FAIRYTALE NEWS, are one of the most prolifc and successful author-illustrator partnerships in the world of children's books. They live in Cork, Ireland.
