Editorial Reviews


"A playfully sweet and amusing collection that's an excellent choice for reading aloud." - Kirkus Reviews




This illustrated children's book includes fables, fairy tales, and other short stories.

In the 22 stories collected here, characters can be young or older, and the plots can be fairly realistic or fanciful. The volume features both animal and human characters in a variety of settings: a garden, under the sea, the present day, and a fairy-tale past. While most are original, some employ familiar elements from children's literature or fables, such as a naughty, carrot-stealing rabbit or, in "The goat who didn't have any milk to feed her kid," a narrative reminiscent of "The Little Red Hen." In these cases, though, the tales provide fresh takes, as in "The true story of the ant and the cicada." A lazy insect idles the summer away, but instead of leaving him to starve, the ant king invites him to exchange shelter for entertainment. Several tales feature the classic motif of being rewarded for kindness to animals, as in "Once upon a time, a bear went to the circus," in which a little girl frees a captive circus bear who later gives salmon to her picnicking family. Kalyvas, writing his second children's book, has a good ear for dialogue and appealing repetition, even supplying read-aloud suggestions for one story: "Tickle-tickle-tickle, he tickled its nose with her whiskers (author's note to parents: tickle your child's nose at the same time)." The tales emphasize altruism, compassion, and a spirit of fun, always concluding: "And they lived happily ever after!" Illustrating her second children's book, Gottardo supplies digital pictures that capture the tales' humor. Apart from a Bedouin family, all the human characters appear to be White.

A playfully sweet and amusing collection that's an excellent choice for reading aloud.
