Twice Upon a Time: Little Thumb


There are two sides to every story. Little Red Riding Hood retold, both as you know it and… as you don’t! How could parents abandon their children in the forest? And how likely is it that smart Little Thumb did not know that the crumbs would not last for long in the woods? Besides, if he was so short, how did the huge Giant manage to see him and… not step on him? And really, now, just how tired was this Giant to let Little Thumb steal his boots? Once again, intrepid reporter Tom Flibbertigibbet is determined to unearth the truth behind the classic fairy tale. A book about sibling cooperation, achieving adulthood, and facing our worst fears; this story is an excellent choice for parents and teachers who wish to teach children to look beyond appearances and think critically. Because not every word is cast in stone!
