Long Long Ago by Robin Skelton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


For ages 4-8. In this delightful collection of animal fables, Robin Skelton transports young readers back to long, long ago -- an ancient and fabulous time. These humorous stories offer solutions to such difficult questions as "Why does the ostrich bury its head in the ground?" The book takes children into a wonderful world of fantasy and yet -- as always with Skelton -- the tales have unexpected endings. Pamela Breeze Currie's engaging pen-and-ink drawings capture the spirit of Skelton's tales.
