RED RIDING HOOD, AND MORE JAMES MARSHALL FAIRY TALE FAVORITES cover image
Held kids' attention until the end. Each child seemed to relate to a different story best. Chicken Little was a favorite, perhaps because it was the least familiar. Three Little Pigs was also a big hit.
Classic, familiar tales, in original version. More violent than contemporary stories but the violence is well handled. Granny emerges from the wolf's stomach after being eaten in Little Red Riding Hood, and comments that it's too dark to read in there.
Zanily adapted fairy tales (Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Rapunzel, Chicken Little and Goldilocks and the Three Bears) by humorist James Marshall, brought to vivid life. Music by Ernest V. Troost.
