An Old time Classic


A old school Classic, loved this story when I was little and now my young children enjoy...





A gift for my 2 1/2 year old grandaughter. She had borrowed it so many times from the library that we decided she needed her own copy. Our four year old GD loves it too. It was great fun for them both to receive their copy in the mail!

Regional Victoria.


So much fun - for kids too!


Good fun for shared reading - just as enjoyable for both the child and the adult reader.



A classic tale, funny too.


Really keeps young children interested, and is a great book to act out. Funny and entertaining.



Have some fun with this story


A good story that allows the reader lots of room for adding further drama and inspiration by having some fun with the story. Good story for a little acting to further engage children.
