…and Cinderella and Prince Charming were married and lived happily ever after. Or did they…?

What would happen to those old tales that we know so well if the endings were changed? Chaos ensues when a wicked old witch and her gang of fairytale baddies have finally had enough of losing to the good guys and decide to steal the Great Storybook; the magical book that holds the key to all the ‘Happily Ever Afters’ there have ever been.

When the Wicked Witch begins kidnapping fairytale characters it is up to Cinderella and her loyal friends to try and sort out the pandemonium, with a little help from her Fairy Godmother. Will Cinderella find her Prince Charming? Will Dame Trott ever see her darling Three Little Piggies ever again? And what has happened to the contents of Old Mother Hubbard’s cupboard? Find out in this mixed up tale of magical mayhem!
