The Lovereading4Kids comment

Even more inventive and wondrous than the fairy stories, this classic anthology is a treasure trove of the unusual and the unexpected. Terry Jones revels in the crazy capers and madcap antics of humans and animals alike. Each story is vividly brought to life in Michael Foreman’s brilliant illustrations.
