A necklace of raindrops and other stories
Here are eight gloriously imaginative stories for eight satisfying sessions of bedtime reading. Thereís a flying apple pie, a cat thatís bigger than an elephant, a house that lays an egg, storybook animals that leap out of their books at night, and a wealth of other wonderful characters and ideas, all with the colorful, dreamlike quality of the very best fairy tales.
Joan Aikenís delicious prose is a joy to read aloud to very young listeners yet simple enough for the independent reader to savor on his or her own. Kevin Hawkesís illustrations ó nearly 60 of them ó capture with great flair and fun the magical adventures and the triumph of the good over the bad.
