Summary
Here's an irresistibly illustrated collection of five original stories that is especially designed for children as young as one year. Each of the simple animal stories features interactive activities. "Go Away, Mr. Wolf," a sprightly new version of "The Three Little Pigs," is made all the more fun with big die-cut doors to open. "The Old Alligator" includes simple instructions for joining in the action by clapping hands, rubbing the tummy, making a big smile, and more. Die-cut picture tabs enable toddlers to find their favorite story all by themselves, making this a terrific first storybook for both reading alone and reading aloud.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Price's (Peekaboo!) collection of a handful of tales suggests different approaches to storytelling. Two tales are traditional narratives of realization: "Will You Be My Friend?" tells of a lonely chick who discovers that while he can't find many animals to play with, they do come to his rescue when he really needs them; "Bears Don't Swim" stars a water-wary hero who finds out "that he loved swimming as much as--well, as much as honey sandwiches." Four full-bleed, wordless "story pictures" show off the volume's greatest strength: Morozumi's (My Friend Gorilla) artwork, depicting a quartet of different climates (a sunny jungle, a windy park). The piŠce de r‚sistance is a cutaway spread of Noah's Ark in the rain: Noah's family mingles with free-reigning animals, laundry dries inside on the line and gorillas warm by a fire. A few of the animal pairs are separated (Noah's wife talks to a mouse perched on the window sill while its mate hangs out a couple levels below), making for a fun game of match-ups. Flaps in the final story reveal a menacing wolf's meager disguises as he tries to trick a family of pigs into letting him into their house. It's an uneven but playful potpourri of tales, but the paintings of appealing cuddly and downy creatures are consistently captivating. Ages 1-5. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
