Falling Out of the Sky
Rachel Piercey, Emma Wright

Ages: 7-11

Hansel and Gretel's witch takes us behind the scenes in her gingerbread cottage, and Medusa explains how the snakes on her head rule out a lot of options in everyday life – wearing a hat, for example.

Falling out of the Sky is a treasury of poems which retell classic myths, legends and fairytales from across the world in fun, often tongue-in-cheek ways.
