With lots of lift-the-flaps, miniature books, and a spectacular pop-up concluding section, this novelty volume engages the reader and asks a series of questions whose answers are embedded on the various interactive pages of the book.

Can you guess why a pair of silver slippers or a stone bridge might put you in danger if you are traveling through the woods? Open the flap and discover why Henny Penny and Chicken Little are hiding in a hen house, or flip another flap to see what mysterious transformation a frog, mouse or duckling might undergo. Do you know how to test a broomstick to see if it has magical properties or can you find a magic mirror, secret passage and flying carpet tucked away in a palace?

There's plenty to keep you busy as you page through this handbook, and both adults and children (five and older) will find this an engaging volume. Book collectors will also be interested in this book as well since it is so well done.

Note: Be sure to run your fingers back and forth over each page because some of the fold-outs are hard to find until they have been opened a few times.
