    So cute. Well worth the money. Also, to one of the previous reviewers...there are more stories. Click on the illustrations from the main menu. Took me a minute to figure out too. :)

    Huuuuuuuh?

    I thought it had other stories, but it's still good because it teaches a lesson about greed.
