This charming series retells classic fairy tales with bright illustrations and a clever tone. The stories in the Little Pebbles series have been adapted for children today while respecting the richness and flavor of the original versions. The small size of the books and their warm, inviting illustrations will appeal to children, who will also love the game page at the end of each book and will want to read all the books in the series. Run, run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me - I'm the Gingerbread Man! is the infectious refrain that this legendary character taunts at his hungry pursuers through this classic, playful romp. In the end it is the sly fox who knows a better way to get a bite of this runaway afternoon snack.
