Adventures with Arnold Lobel: Small Pig; Mouse Tales; Uncle Elephantby Arnold Lobel
Small Pig runs away from his/i>
There was no one better at writing books for beginning readers than Arnold Lobel! For over twenty-five years he has made children laugh with his stories about frogs, pigs, mice, elephants, and almost every other animal imaginable. Now, for the first time, three of his very best I Can Read Books are together in one volume.
Small Pig runs away from his farm because it is too neat and shiny. He wants lots of good, sticky mud. He tries a swamp, a junkyard, and a big city, without any luck. Where can he find what he is looking for?
When seven mouse boys are tucked into bed, they ask their papa for a story. He does better than that - he tells them seven Mouse Tales, one for each of them to fall asleep to.
When Mother and Father Elephant are lost at sea, their elephant son is left all alone. But not for long. Uncle Elephant comes to the rescue - full of wrinkles, stories, and just the right song for any occasion.
Caldecott Medal winner Arnold Lobel is at his very best in this collection of funny and gentle stories perfect for any child just learning to read.
