Here are eight gloriously imaginative stories for eight satisfying sessions of bedtime reading. There?s a flying apple pie, a cat that?s bigger than an elephant, a house that lays an egg, storybook animals that leap out of their books at night, and a wealth of other wonderful characters and ideas, all with the colorful, dreamlike quality of the very best fairy tales.
Joan Aiken?s delicious prose is a joy to read aloud to very young listeners yet simple enough for the independent reader to savor on his or her own. Kevin Hawkes?s illustrations ? nearly 60 of them ? capture with great flair and fun the magical adventures and the triumph of the good over the bad.
Joan Aiken is the author of more than 35 distinguished children’s books, including the classic The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.
Kevin Hawkes has illustrated several award-winning picture books, as well as Philip Pullman’s novel I Was a Rat.
