Read an Excerpt

There once was a mother goat who had seven kids. She loved them all very much.

One day the mother goat needed to get food for her hungry children. She called them together and said, “Children, I’m going out. Keep the door locked and do not let the wolf in. He wants to eat you! He’s very sneaky so he might wear a disguise. But you will know hi, by his deep voice and black paws.”

“Yes, Mama,” said the seven kids, “we promise to be very careful. Don’t worry about us.” And so the mother goat went out.

Not long after this, someone knocked at the door and said in a deep voice, “Open up, children, it’s your mother. I have a treat for each of you.”

I love this story, I guess because I was brought up with it in Russia. Illustrations in this book are absolutely delightful, though a bit scary at times - the moment when mother goat saws up the wolf's stomach is a bit too detailed to my taste, but overall, it is a great presentation of the old tale. My kids adored it, though it did brought up tears in my 5 year old son for the bad wolf's fate. I believe it represents very truthfully Grimm's fairy tales spirit.
