The Poodle and the Pea, by Charlotte Guillain
Simply adorable with cute illustrations.
The Poodle and the Pea puts a fun twist on a classic tale. Although my kids knew what was going to happen, they still loved it! For all of those animal loving children this book-and the series- are super fun reads. At the end it asks you how you would change the story, Lila’s reply, “Momma and the Pea and you would marry the Poodle!”
This book is also great for your little readers to read out loud, and of course, a fun bedtime tale.
“In Animal Fairy Tales, beautiful illustrations and simple text retell classic fairy tales from a new perspective: all the characters are animals!
