The Fairytale Hairdresser and Thumbelina
  • The Fairytale Hairdresser and Thumbelina

  • Kittie Lacey is the best hairdresser in all of Fairyland. . .

    A brave, stylish heroine for whom no tangle is too troublesome and no frizz too fearsome!

    . . . . . . .

    It's almost time for the Flower Festival and Kitty Lacey's salon is bursting with people who would like a special floral hairstyle.

    This is the Flower People's favourite time of year but they have all mysteriously disappeared. All except one: Thumbelina.

    But when Thumbelina vanishes too, can Kittie save the day with the help of a bluebird, a sprinkle of magic and some fabulous fairytale fashion?

Abie Longstaff is the eldest of six children and grew up in Australia, Hong Kong and France. She knows all about squabbling, chaos and bossing younger sisters around. So she logically began her career as a barrister. She started writing when her children were born. Her favourite childhood books were Hating Alison Ashley, A Little Princess, Maura's Angel and The Black Stallion and she sneakily reads them again sometimes. Abie lives in Hove with her family.
