Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Fall)
These four books (more to come) appear in a uniform paper-over-board edition. Galdone was a refreshingly modest illustrator: his retellings are straightforward and his unassumingly loose-lined, color-separated pictures provide just enough embellishment, as when the lazy cat in The Little Red Hen lolls on the couch, dreaming of sardines. Plenty of white space gives the stories all the room they need. [Review covers these titles: The Little Red Hen, The Three Bears, Three Little Kittens, and The Three Little Pigs.] Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
