A short but sweet retelling of the classic story with fun images and a lovely early intro into chapter markers by tabbing each page with a picture of the main character for that page. What makes this book even better is that there is a QR code on the back of the book, which you can scan for a free audio book version of the story- this is awesome and allows little ones to explore new voices telling their stories. This was a library book and is one that we would definitely check out again.
