Fee, the dwarf hippo, wants to take part in a beauty contest for horses, but when she gets there, Fee turns quite pale, because all the other contestants are such beautiful horses. Luckily, Tilly Trouserbutton comes up with a great idea: she simply takes away the horses’ mega-glitter-gleam oil, mane extensions and high heels, and in the blink of an eye, the pretty prancing ponies look more like old nags!

Oh my goodness, a lump of wood that can actually speak.

He will know what to do with it, he tells himself. And Antonio is quite right because before very long, Gepetto has chipped away at the wood and created a charmingly mischievous puppet, Pinocchio – and the first thing Pinocchio does is to stick out his tongue at Gepetto.
The retelling of this popular classic is suitable for children of three and over.
