Roxy & Jones: The Great Fairytale Cover-Up

By Angela Woolfe

A hilarious modern fairy-tale mash-up set in a world in which witches are real, magic is real and fairy tales are not only real ... but recent history.

Once Upon a Modern Time, in the city of Rexopolis, in the Kingdom of Illustria, lived twelve-year-old Roxy Humperdinck, half-sister to Hansel and Gretel (yes, THE Hansel and Gretel, not that she knows it). Enter Cinderella ("Call me Jones") Jones, who most definitely does NOT want to marry ghastly Prince Charming and is far too busy hunting for lost relics of the Cursed Kingdom. But now she needs Roxy’s help. And Roxy’s about to discover the truth about her world and her family: that witches are real, magic is real and fairy tales are not only real ... but recent history.

Customer reviews


'With strong themes of friendship, family and magic this exciting, witty adventure thriller will have you hooked from the first page. Characters are larger than life, the plot is original and unpredictable and the writing is very, very funny. This is a great read for anyone who has fond memories of the traditional fairy tales... and would not be surprised to find out that they are all entirely true!' Booktrust

'An off-the-wall, wacky modern fairytale, this book is both gripping and hilarious… Crafty, clever and full of spark, Roxy & Jones are a heart-warming, fun-loving duo that find themselves navigating a mystery that can't be beat. Fast-paced, funny and a brilliant'll never look at fairytales the same way again.' Fallen Star Stories Blog
