"tales of the country side"

town mouse and country mouse

this is a really sweet story called "humbug witch"
"all of her was very little!! except her nose that was very BIG"
and the story continues describing all the characters of a witch followed by "and she took of her funny looking black shoes with gold buckles"
and so on then finishes with (as pictured) "she took off her mask....and went to bed"

this is a new book that was gifted to cam from his aunt Pearl&uncle Darius,pearl is studying to be a teacher so is always buying cam new books!! she works here at storytime. I highly recommend buying this one for your wee one or a gift its very sweet. "kiss,kiss" by Margaret wild&Bridget Strevens-Marzo.

"the adventures of pip" Stella over at "the adventures of...a very dark horse" also has one of these series by the same author.

this is the sweetest little book "what is a grandmother?"
