The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best loved, classic nursery stories are vividly brought to life in Tony Ross’s humorous and vigorous illustrations and now together with a CD. Follow the charmingly agile goats as they trip-trott over the bridge having dispatched the hairy troll SPLASH into the river with a well-aimed kick. See how the three little pigs keep their houses safe from the predatory wolf and watch how Little Red-Riding Hood is outwitted by another wolf as she visits her grandma but is saved in the end. Also available is the companion book My Favourite Nursery Rhymes.
