The Fairytale Hairdresser and The Sugar Plum Fairy

With Summer loving having books read to her as well as trying to read them herself now, she is always asking for new books, when the opportunity came up that we could review the new book by Abbie Longstaff, called The Fairytale Hairdresser and the sugar plum fairy. Summer couldn't wait to find out what Kittie Lacey the best hairdresser in town had been up too.  

The Fairytale Hairdresser is one of her favorite books since we reviewed her last book The Fairytale Hairdresser and The little mermaid which you can read here

Summer got ready for bed really quickly when she realised what bed time story she was getting, we got settled on her bed and she held the book up for a picture to be taken.

This beautifully illustrated book is a modern twist on the Nutcracker story.  The prince of the land of sweets has gone missing! Could the wicked Mouse King and Queen be to blame?  Join the Fairytale Hairdresser and her princess friends in a tale of enchanted toys, delicious dancing delights and fabulous Fairytale Fashion
Beautifully illustrated
The story has got a Christmas theme to it, with it being about the nutcracker, but not to the point where you wouldn't want to read this all year round.  Summer was enchanted with the story and wanted to know what would happen to Kittie Lacey and the Sugar Plum fairy.

Kittie Lacey came to the rescue and saved the Nutcracker from the evil King and Queen mouse and even found the perfect outfit for the Sugar plum Fairy, I asked Summer which was her favorite outfit.
