|About the Book|
Just as described, short renditions of favorite classic fairy tales--Cinderella, Bambi, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, Snow White, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, and Sleeping Beauty. While I love and wouldnt want to miss out on the complete detail of these stories, there are times when your little prince or princess wants you to read FILL-IN-THE-NAME-OF-THE-STORY-HERE for the millionth time or youre dreadfully exhausted and not sure how youre going to squeak out reading time as they drift off to sleep before you clonk out of consciousness yourself. These adaptations by Mary Packard are well done. I cant imagine doing better myself within the limited confines of brevity for each story. Packard hits the essential without missing any needed detail. While my 3-year-old did ask me, Wheres the owl? in Bambi, I really dont think the younguns will notice how condensed these really are.
