Best-selling children’s author, Abie Longstaff, thrilled children and parents when she made a guest appearance during Story Time at Waterstones.

A mum tells of how she walked into the shop with her daughter, to find that their favourite author was reading from The Fairytale Hairdresser.

Writing on Single Mother Ahoy, she says, ‘imagine our surprise when we realised it wasn’t just any old Story Time! Oh, no. This was Story Time with Abie Longstaff, the fabulous children’s author’.

‘What I absolutely love about this book is that although the story and pictures are very much original creations, they incorporate many well-known fairy-tale characters…I watched as Abie read her books to the children, how excited they all were to point out the characters they had spotted in the books…What I really like about this book is that for the moment, it’s a nice story for us to read together‘.
