Gladys and her little sister Gwendolyn are going off with their parents on a vacation by a lake in the country. Their mother promises them that they’ll be able to swim and pick wildflowers and ride ponies. It will be just like a fairy tale. They keep asking, Are we there yet? But there’s always farther to go.
To amuse themselves, Gladys tells Gwendolyn stories. She tells about “Zack and the Beans Talk,” and about “Rumpled Stiltsky,” and about “Little Lickin Chicken.” Gwendolyn tells one of her own, the strange tale of “Hother Mubbard.”
This charming Read-to-Me book will fascinate and amuse younger readers. They’ll find their favorite fairy stories here changed into humorous and whimsical tall tales that tickle the imagination. Four short stories that make perfect bedtime reading for kids 5-9.
