The Lovereading4Kids comment
A delightfully funny tale that parents and toddlers can enjoy together from a young age just as much as 5-7 year olds will enjoy it reading alone. The illustrations are stunning and complement the humorous text brilliantly. Rest-assured children will be very participatory in the story and what’s more there’s a complete and unabridged CD to go with it – so those car journeys can be full of the characters in The Gigantic Turnip too.
Gigantic Turnip by Alexei Tolstoy and Niamh Sharkey
First recorded in Russia in the 19th Century by Aleksei Tolstoy, this is a funny folk tale for children and adults alike. This title also includes a free story CD.
