A funny and contemporary illustrated fairy tale about a strong heroine who saves the day,
perfect for early readers.
Brave Dulcinea has known since she was small not to enter the dangerous magic forest where
the witch has her castle. But her father hasn’t come home from collecting blueberries for her
birthday pancakes. Did the witch cast a spell on him?
Dulcinea must brave the dark forest and sneak into the witch’s castle to steal the spell book and
free him. Her father would hardly have named her after the brave Dulcinea if she couldn’t
break a witch’s spell to celebrate her birthday with him!
Ole Könnecke’s funny, comic-style illustrations and humourous story turn the classic fairy tale
on its head. Children aged 5 to 9, or young readers just starting out on independent reading,
will love cheering on the brave and capable Dulcinea as she saves her father and gets him home
just in time for pancakes.
