Parents in Touch recommend Abie Longstaff‘s The Fairytale Hairdresser and Beauty and the Beast, to be published by Picture Corgi in March 2016:

“Kittie Lacey is the best hairdresser in all the land and she has wonderful fairytale adventures too. It’s soon to be Prince Charming and Princess Cinderella’s Ball, but Kittie faces a real challenge – can she make Beast lovable?

Of course, this IS a fairytale, so you can be sure of a happy ending but it’s quite different to the traditional tale. This is a lovely series, peopled on every page with a wondrous range of fairytale characters for children to spot, and with some very contemporary twists on the outcomes.
