You know how it normally goes: girl in search of Granny, pursued by wolf. Enter the incomparable Mike Artell, however, whose hilarious Cajun twist features ducks, dialect and a singularly stupid crocodile called Claude, whose inspired come-uppance turns the traditional tale on its head.

Hardly to be confused with the original, this is a children’s book as much fun for grown-ups to read as for their spellbound charges to listen to. Lay it on with a trowel!
