The Gingerbread Boy
The classic tale of the old couple, with no children of their own, who bake a gingerbread boy to keep them company. Just as the little old woman is about to take him from the oven, he slips away and runs out the door past a cow, a horse, a group of threshers, mowers, etc. All follow in hot pursuit until the gingerbread boy meets up with a wily fox, and 'at last and at last he went the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven... He was all gone!'.
Three Little Pigs
Three little pigs set out to seek their fortune. Each pig builds himself a house: one of straw, one of sticks, and one of bricks. When a hungry wolf huffs, and puffs, and blows in the houses of two little pigs, the third pig realises that he might need more than a sturdy house of bricks to keep the wolf away!
The Three Bears
When three bears leave their house to go for a walk in the wood, leaving their porridge to cool, a young girl named Goldilocks comes calling....and what a mess she makes! Great Big, Middle-Sized, and Little Wee readers alike will love Paul Galdone's delightful depiction of the original folk tale.
