This cheerful companion follows the enormous success of You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Stories to Read Together. Designed with budding readers in mind, each of the 8 fairy tales has been given a new twist and is set in three columns and three colors as a script for two voices to read separately or together. From the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk (in which Jack negotiates for the ogre's hen!) to Goldilocks (in which Baby Bear helps the famed intruder find her way home!), acclaimed writer Mary Ann Hoberman clever disguises reading skill development in her child-friendly rhymes, while Michael Emberley's warm and witty watercolors make for another irresistible package.
