About this title:

Synopsis: A collection of stories starring giants, princesses, animals, and beasts features the work of Margaret Wise Brown, Lilian Moore, Kenneth McLeish, Margaret Mahy, and Charlotte Zolotow.

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 1-- A collection of 12 short, upbeat tales suited to sharing. Ranging from Margaret Wise Brown's "The Little Girl's Medicine," originally written in 1938, to several contemporary works, the stories offer fare by 12 different authors, including Charlotte Zolotow, Lilian Moore, and a variety of British writers. Most of the selections are delightful bits of whimsy, such as Kenneth McLeish's "The Flying Rabbit," a loosely structured pourquoi tale about why crows and rabbits live where they do, or Terry Jones's "The Beast with a Thousand Teeth," with the classic theme of a small creature using his wits to overcome a monster. Betty Van Witsen's "Cheese, Peas, and Chocolate Pudding" tells the story of a fussy eater who learns to expand his diet, while Lilian Moore's "Junk Day on Juniper Street" gives clear testimony to the idea that "One person's trash is another person's treasure." Most of the stories are pleasant and well written. Unfortunately, the humorous watercolor illustrations portray only one non-Caucasian face, and, although the CIP data claims that the stories represent several different countries, no notes are given on their origins. Not as strong a choice as Tomie dePaola's Favorite Nursery Tales (Putnam, 1986), but an acceptable addition for libraries with a demand for collected bedtime stories. --Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, Wheeler School, Providence, RI
