The Sly Fox And The Little Red Hen

Ilustraţiile sunt încântător de frumoase şi realiste. Dar povestea însăşi e cam stupidă, cu multe situaţii ilogice. Probabil vulpea şi găina au fost puţin mai deştepti decât autorul textului. Povestea există în numeroase versiuni, cu diferiţi autori şi realizări grafice. Dar cred că toate sunt asemănătoare, fiind reinterpretări...

"And he pulled, and she pulled," etc. I also recognised the cover immediately.Reckon 1984 would be the last time I read it, but it's hard to be accurate all...

The Three Little Pigs

1. Three little pigs have to find their way in the world. Each pig builds a house and they get tested by the wolf. He blows the first two down and fails to blow the third one down. The wolf ends up getting boiled by the last pig.2. This book connects with our chapter because it is a type of folk tale. The type is cumulative because each pig builds a house that is just a little bigger than the last pigs so it is repetitive. I think it could...
