Cinderella (Folk Tale Classics)by Paul Galdone
Synopses & Reviews
Little Red Hen is a time-tested cautionary tale about how we reap what we sow. When the hen asks a cat, dog, and mouse for help planting some wheat, she gets no takers: "‘Not I! said the cat. ‘Not I! said the dog. ‘Not I! said the mouse." They wont water, cut, or grind the wheat . . . or help bake a cake with it, either. So guess who eats the cake by herself in the end? The Caldecott Honor artist Paul Galdones delightfully detailed ink and wash illustrations—packed with charming details—add plenty of sly humor to the well-loved story that not only offers a sage message but also shows children what it takes to make a cake from the ground up!
Galdone's dynamic, amusing pictures add much humor to the familiar tale of the industrious hen and lazy cat, dog, and mouse.
All three pigs set out to seek their fortune, but two of them come to a sorry end.
This timeless Paul Galdone fable about a country mouse and a city mouse is a rich addition to the recently released Folk Tale Classics series.

“Once upon a time there was a sweet little maiden who was loved by all who knew
her . . .”
So begins this classic tale about Little Red Riding Hood and her encounter with the

drawn on the Brothers Grimm version of Little Red Riding Hood, and lends beautiful,
vibrant illustrations to his exciting retelling of this classic fairy tale. Small children and
Paul Galdones older fans will cheer as the old tale comes enchantingly alive in lovely,
nostalgic, full-color pictures.
