Different take on fairy tales with a moral of its own.
My son loved this (3) even though he wasn't familiar with every fairy tale referenced in it. I found it entertaining myself to read.

One never knows what one will discover among a pile of books. For Dog, it is a fairy tale book that holds a brand new adventure. When he comes across an imp in a bottle, this adorable and kind critter decides to help find the witch that cursed him. Along the way they come across characters from other fairy tales, including Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, and the Three Little Pigs. Each is in the midst of their own story, and about to find themselves in trouble. The imp's bad luck brings about some fortunate results for these others though. When they finally reach the witch, it turns out things are not quite as the imp remembered, and he is not as unlucky as he thought he was. A happy ending is guaranteed from the beginning because Yates` gentle voice, style, and use of watercolours. Certain fairy tale creatures like the imp have a comic appearance with their boogely eyes and exaggerated motions. A good friend is the best sort of luck of all. Even on the worst days, that person`s kindness and help can make it easier, not to mention they are there for the ride right alongside you.
