This was such a delightful book to discover. It has become a bedtime favorite for my 2 year old son. It is so wonderfully and beautifully detailed in its illustrations. There are three different stories which means we can read just one or two if we're short on time before heading to bed. The stories are quick to read but delightful in their subject matter-stressing cooperation and friendship among the animals who live in the forest. The author is British so I've substituted some North American phrasing such as 'Policeman Tom' for 'P.C. Tom' but as my son gets older it will be a good way to introduce him to the language of a different country. It is definately one of our favorites-and we read tons every day. Our whole family has decided we would love to live in the title characters' beautiful apple tree house by the stream...or at least visit and have a cup of tea!Was this review helpful?
