"What kind of story will we have tonight, Jamie?"

"A made-up one! With a Prince and a Bear! And a Witch. And more Bears!"

Jamie's dad tells a story one evening, of brave princes and cunning witches. But Jamie has his own ideas, and soon we have evil broccoli castles, Witches who turn people into stone-but-sometimes-jelly, a Princess who is secretly a jewel thief … and a Ninja Frog.

A wild and wonderful fairytale adventure for 3-7 year-olds, written by Alastair Chisholm and illustrated by Jez Tuya.

Hello, I'm Alastair.

I'm a children's writer and a puzzle creator. As a puzzle creator I wrote quite a lot of books of Sudoku, Kakuro and other puzzles, including the successful Kids' Book of Sudoku and Kids' Book of Kakuro series. These days I'm the author of the children's picture book The Prince and the Witch and the Thief and the Bears from Walker Books.

I live in Edinburgh with my wife (who is lovely), two children (who are lovely but very loud), and a cat who is yowling at me even though there is clearly food in her bowl, look, it's right there, look.
