Goldilocks and the Three Bears
The Little Red Hen
The Three Little Pigs
The Musicians of Bremen
All of these are no doubt infinitely familiar, with the exception of the "Giant Turnip" and the "The Musicians of Bremen" -- so I'll refresh your memory. In "The Giant Turnip" a farmer plants seeds and a huge turnip grows (no surprise huh :). The fun comes in when everybody has to pull and pull -- the farmer, his wife, the children, the dog, cat, and even the mouse! -- to harvest the giant veg.
"The Musicians of Bremen" is about a group of animals who outwit a group of robbers. But it doesn't start out that way. At first, it's just a Donkey heading to the city to be a musician. He runs across a dog, and then a cat and rooster, all of them unloved and unwanted. At his invitation they join the Donkey and head to Bremen to be musicians. When they arrive they find that they are very hungry indeed. Which is when they peek into the robber's home. They see food and they see that the place is occupied by bad-guys. Well up they climb on each others backs. They proceed to make a raucous noise and then crash through the door, scaring the robbers so badly that they run away.
The story ends with one robber sneaking back in the dead of night. One by one he alarms the animals and they defend themselves. The cat scratches him, for example, and the dog bites him. And since it's dark, the robber hasn't a clue that it's four animals. He thinks it's a witch which is what he runs and tells his criminal friends.Read more ›
