The Hut That Grew by Annie Dalton

When Princess Zena discovers she must move from her spacious, luxurious palace to live in the tiny gatekeeper's hut, she is devastated. Then a wise old man offers her some help - every day, the princess is told to fill the house with more and more animals. Soon she is sharing her bed with chickens and monkeys and a goat and a camel, and things aren't getting better, they're getting worse! But when they all leave, has the princess finally got what she wanted? The Hut that Grew is a retelling of an Ethiopian folk tale. Book band: Gold Ideal for ages: 5+

Reviews

'This series is fantastic for providing moral tales for early years and a good read for older pupils.'

'One of the strengths of the 'White Wolves'
