Previously by Allan Ahlberg


What happened before Goldilocks went to the bear’s house?  How was that related to Jack?  Did you know Jack in the beanstalk is the same Jack as in “Jack and Jill”?  What happened to the frog when he was a prince?  Did you know Cinderella knew the Gingerbread Boy?  This story looks at the relationship between different fairy tales and imagines what happened “previously”.

 I know I have said it before…I love alternate versions of fairy tales and this is no exception.  I like how the author ties various tales together and how he works backwards.  What a fun book!
