And there's a special surprise right at the end! It features simple vocabulary, repetition to aid in memorization, and plenty of counting practice for young readers. Niamh Sharkey's quirky folk art illustrations lend to the humor of the story and the personalities of the characters. It is a lovely way to introduce young readers to a classic Russian tale.
