The Wild Washerwomen

'Look out, the wild washerwomen are coming!'

Once upon a time there were seven unhappy washerwomen, with far too much washing to do. When their voices aren't heard they decide to go on strike - and wreak havoc in the local villages. No one can control the washerwomen, until seven woodcutters, decide to try. But perhaps the washerwomen will teach the woodcutters a thing or two instead, and everyone might just live happily ever after...


"A rollicking good story; Quentin Blake's irresistible illustrations capture every madcap moment."
Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

"A wonderful treat for young and old alike and a real classic that should sit proudly on every nursery bookshelf."
Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids

"This book is a fairy tale with a difference. Mad, crazy, zany, chaotic: how else do you describe the exuberance which explodes over every page? Children of 3+ will adore this."
Blackbird Pie

"A riot of a book."
Cork Evening Echo
