A moral tale for child and parent alike
on 19 June 2003
Of all the books I read to my children when they were small, this was the one that left the greatest mark.
Why? Because it has wicked twist in its tail, which was probably lost on the kids, but had me rolling on the floor.
A short snappy tale, imaginatively illustrated - the battle scene is great! - with a punch line that I have never forgotten.
And please - do not turn to the last page until you have read all that has gone before!
