A most delicious selection of Philip Pullman’s favourite fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, re-told and re-worked for this Christmas.

Enter a world of powerful witches, enchanted forest creatures, careless parents and fearless children as they embark on adventures full of magic, gore, friendship, and bravery.

But beware, these gleefully dark and much-loved tales won’t be quite what you expect…
