A New Favorite for My Kids (and Me!)

The stories in this collection are perfect for middle grade readers or for reading aloud to your favorite preschooler. They're amusing and unexpected in all the right ways. (I guess that makes them great for adults too...)

These adaptations will have you going back for the full-length originals. You'll enjoy them as much as your kids do, and maybe you'll have a chance to read the originals together too!
