“Who will help me cut the wheat?” asked the little red hen.

Eight fairy tales to read out loud or by yourself!  Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Enormous Turnip, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, The Little Red Hen, The Musicians of Bremen and Henny Penny all in one yummy book!

I love fairy tales.  This book was funny, colourful, simply written and a great read.  Yummy will last 8 times as long as a regular picture book, because it has 8 stories that are simple enough for a reader just starting out, but great to read out loud too.  Yummy makes an awesome gift for ages 4-8.

Lucy Cousins is the author and illustrator of lots of different children’s stories.  She painted all the pictures in this book.  She lives in Hampshire, England.

Lucy Cousins’ wonderful book Yummy gets 5 stars.
