There she was on the news,
Miss Goody Two-Shoes,
Caught on CCTV.
Don't look so shocked!
Of course you know who -
Who else but Goldilocks?
Poor Goldilocks, caught on camera breaking into a house of suburban grizzlies; Pumpkin Biker Cinderella; two ugly sisters with attitude; Puss-in-Trainers, a feline with a feel for the cool; the Giant with a mobile phone…. Not to mention the Bad Hair Day Fairy, the teenage princess who wants a tattoo and the Dwarf Rap.
Here are 30 amazing poems which are rooted in the world of fairy tale and legend. Wickedly witty, deliciously subversive and utterly modern, the poems are also affectionate and big-hearted tributes to the original tales and characters that inspired them. This is a sizzling new collection from a master poet, brought explosively to life by Satoshi Kitamura's extraordinary black-and-white illustrations.
