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: "and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the cat. and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the dog. and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the mouse." They wonand#8217;t 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 Galdoneand#8217;s delightfully detailed ink and wash illustrationsand#8212;packed with charming detailsand#8212;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!
The three goat brothers brave the terrible troll in a colorful version of the classic tale.
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.
A folk tale classic by Paul Galdone, in a beautiful gift edition with gold foil accents. The three Billy Goats Gruff are hungry and want to go over the bridge to a fine meadow full of grass and daisies where they can eat and eat. But under the bridge lives a troll whoand#8217;s as mean as he is scary . . .
This familiar nursery tale features a warmly appealing bear family and a naughty, gap-toothed Goldilocks.
