Continued in the Kids Wings unit...

Yes, it's Hans Christian Andersen's "The Princess and the "Pea," delightfully retold in a magically piggy world, alliteratively celebrating a preponderance of "P" words! Hysterical illustrations by illustrator Henry Cole and funny turns of events make this a story that kids will beg to be read over and over. After every reading, they will emerge with a vivacious vocabulary and a new sense of the rhythm and fun of words!

Then, after you are all "P"ed out, you can enjoy Pamela Duncan Edwards'
C book with a great moral: Clara Caterpillar!
F book: Four Famished Foxes and Fosdyke
W book: The Worrywarts
S book: Some Smug Snail
and, for St. Patrick's Day or anytime: The Leprechaun's Gold
