This classic tale is told by John Cleese, with music by Elvis Costello and illustrations by Tim Gabor. As enjoyable for adults as it is for children. Ages 5 & up.

Not quite how I remember the story
Verified purchase
This re-telling of the tale is a delightful way to spend a little time with the kids catching up on a tale from youth...until you realize it's not quite the same old tale. John Cleese is awesome as usual, but what puts the icing on the cake is the score by Elvis Costello. I've enjoyed some of his stuff growing up, but this is full, genuine beautiful art of musical genius. Splendid!!!

Great Art & Story
Verified purchase
All was fantastic in this book retold with lightly moving pictures. They do a great job of having just enough movement without making it a yucky cartoon. Art really is fantastic.
