it was amazing
bookshelves: books-every-child-should-know, picture-books

Every child should be exposed to the work of Paul Galdone. He took classic fairy tales and told them in language that keeps the cadence and style of the originals, yet is accessible to a preschooler. His illustrations were strong and bright-- no cluttered margins as in Jan Brett, no Janet Stevens dressed up animals--just clean, clear pictures that are extremely visually pleasing.

This title is one of the best examples of that work--complete with the "Snip, Snap Snout, this tale is out" ending straight from Peter Christen Asbjørnsen's Norwegian Folktales. This is THE version of that tale--and there are many other titles to enjoy.

Your library SHOULD have them. If they don't have these and have Disney crap instead, find another library!
