'Once upon a time an old house stood surrounded by fields and woods. A canal ran past the house, winding gently through the countryside. Here, in the tall grass on the bank, a mother duck had made her nest...' Absolutely charming, the one tale new to us was The Big Pancake which features a cockerel, a pig, and a dark-skinned family, and The Enormous Turnip which begins: 'Once upon a time in the spring, an old man sowed some rows of turnip seeds in his garden. As time went by, the rain fell on the seeds and the sun shone down on them and the turnips began to grow...' The story gets funnier and funnier as each character is introduced to pull the enormous turnip out of the ground. 'The little girl fell on top of the big dog. The big dog fell on top of the black cat. The black cat fell on top of the tiny mouse.' Children have always loved these stories and reading them aloud together is an experience to treasure. Sturdy colourful slipcase box set of 24 hardbacks.
