About this title


The too-clever fox, friendly hare, curious lamb, silly goose, and proud village cock from the author's four most popular picture books, collected here for the first time, come to life in jubilant, all-new illustrations.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Four fables adapted from folktales, previously published as single editions, are gathered here into a newly illustrated volume. A lamb questions many things before determining that he is The Strongest One of All (Greenwillow, 1977; o.p.); an envious goose trades various parts of himself with other birds until a flock of geese ask, What Kind of Bird Is That? (Crown, 1973; o.p.). Where Does the Sun Go at Night? (Greenwillow, 1980) retains the songlike quality of this Armenian lullaby. The Fox and the Hare (Crown, 1969; o.p.) are neighbors until the fox takes over the hare's wooden house. The pen-and-watercolor drawings are simplified versions of those in the original books, resulting in cleaner, more open pages. As is typical of the artists' work, bright, incongruous colors prevail in their depiction of expressive, animated creatures. A pleasant new look at these stories, although not a necessary purchase if the older titles are still around. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
