About the Author:

Tom Percival grew up in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire. On reflection this seemed rather more remote than beautiful, owing to the fact that he lived in a small caravan without electricity, mains water or any sensible form of heating. He thinks that he's probably one of the few people in his peer group to have learned to read by gas lamp. Having established a career as a picture-book author and illustrator, Little Legends is Tom Percival's first foray into the world of writing chapter books for young readers. The idea for Little Legends was developed by Tom Percival and Made in Me, a digital creative studio exploring new ways for technology and storytelling to inspire the next generation.

Review:

Little Legends is a re-imagining of your favourite fairy tales and characters, including Jack (of Beanstalk fame) and a new arrival to Tale Town, Anansi. This early reader is just the ticket for reluctant readers, with large text, frequent, short chapters and a fast paced story line. Huffington Post This book includes all the classic fairy tale characters but tackles issues that children will deal with today. Missing a parent and feeling unease about a new friend joining the group are handled in an interesting, engaging way that doesn't feel like the moral at the end is being pushed. BookTrust Fairy tale fun and all-action adventure for the digital generation! Lancashire Evening Post
