Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Fairy tales are wonderful for young children. They are also fun for parents to read again too. Three brothers on their way to the forest to chop wood encounter a man who is hungry and thirsty. Two of the brothers won't share their bread and water and get hurt in the forest. The youngest brother does help the stranger and is rewarded with a golden goose. The youngest brother stays at an inn run by three sisters. They try to steal his golden goose and become stuck instead. Everyone that touches them in an effort to free them gets stuck too. The Princess, who has been very sad, sees this wild link of people and laughs. She wants the young brother to stay and the King offers him a challenge. If he can find someone to eat a lot of bread and drink all of the water in his cellar he can stay. The young brother goes back to the gentleman who he helped at the beginning of the story. As a result kids will enjoy a fun and enlightening story. Angeletti does a great job of bringing this old tale to new light again with flip up pages. Children love books that are interactive and stories that are lively and fun. Parents will love this book because it teaches children compassion and sharing. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard
