Description: A magical collection of stories perfect for bedtime reading Here are eight gloriously imaginative stories for eight satisfying sessions of bedtime reading. There's a flying apple pie, a cat that's bigger than an elephant, a house that lays an egg, storybook animals that leap out of their books a night, and a wealth of other wonderful characters and ideas, all with the colorful, dreamlike quality of the very best fairy tales. Joan Aiken's delicious prose is a joy to read aloud to very young listerner yet simple enough for the independent reader to savor on his or her own. Kevin Hawkes's illustrations--nearly 60 of them--capture with great flair and fun the magical adventures and the triumph of the good over the bad.
