5.0 out of 5 stars Another super rhyme from Penny Dolan, with an added dimension, 5 Oct. 2009
for the LEAPFROG RHYME TIME series of books.

And one of my favourites for that reason...the unexpected!

From the back cover:-

'In the deep, dark forest
was a deep, dark cave.
Into that forest rode
a knight so brave.

What will the knight find?'

Hmmm, what indeed? ........
Rather a lot.....packed into the pages....as it turns out!
As the brave knight passes through scenes from other well-loved tales, there are some recognisable characters (good and bad!) popping up here and there!
Durable board covers open to 32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Pastel artwork throughout from David Lopez, offering tremendous scope for further discussion....with meaningful facial expressions, the easy rhyming element and a repeat on the words 'dark and deep', this super rhyme guarantees (noisy) interaction, in my experience!
Laid out in the normal LEAPFROG format, the numbered pages have clearly written, easy-to-follow text.

Example of text:-

'In the deep, dark forest
was a deep, dark cave.
Into that forest rode
a knight so brave.

A knight on a horse
who had come from afar,
to the deep, dark forest
where the scary things are.' (but not too scary!)

Pages 30-31 find 'PUZZLE-TIME', with a simple 'picture ordering test' and a 'find the word task', with extension exercise ideas.
The answers are on the very last page along with the titles of other rhymes in this series, including:-

Ruth Tells the Truth
Raindrop Bill
Let's Dance
Eight Enormous Elephants
Miss Polly's Seaside Brolly
Mr Spotty's Potty
