Brand New Book Series by Tom Percival Out Now!


Tom Percival has been drawing since he's been able to hold a pencil, and making up stories for as long as he can remember, in fact, probably longer, especially as his memory is not what it once was! Basically, he's been making things up his whole life and he's not about to stop any time soon.

His latest book series, Little Legends, sees lots of favourite fairy tale characters embark on adventures together. Little Legends are perfect for young readers between the ages of 6-10 years old. We sent one of our reviewers, Lilly (7), the first two books in the series and here's what she thought...

The main characters in the stories are Jack, Anansi, Betsy, Red, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel. They all have been in their own fairy tales before.

Betsy is a talking chicken but she can only say, 'What!', which I think is so funny! 

One day, Jack sees Anansi having a secret meeting with a troll. He thinks Anansi is a troll and has to break the troll spell. Trolls are bad. Jack finds a sea witch called Lily who can grant him wishes, but he has to steal the magic he needs to save the day. 

In the next adventure, The Great Troll Rescue, Jack and his friends are captured by a wicked witch. Red has to save the day this time as there are a lot of people the wicked witch has kidnapped!

Both books are very funny, enjoyable and easy to read. I think boys and girls will like reading them. My mum and dad liked me reading the stories to them as well. I like reading Horrid Henry and Jeremy Strong books as they make me laugh, and these books made me laugh too. I've taken the books to school for Show and Tell as they are so good to read, everyone should read them. My favourite book is The Spell Thief because of the characters Jack and Betsy. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
