Limelight Larry and The Three Billy Goats Fluff are two Tiger Tales books we are enjoying reading these days.
In Limelight Larry, a vain peacock wants to star solo in his book, but keeps getting joined by more and more friends. Initially upset by their presence, Larry finally realizes that company is a pretty good thing.
While I found Limelight Larry amusing and enjoyed the illustrations – especially the full page spread of Larry Peacock – I loved The Three Billy Goats Fluff. Considering how often I’ve had to reread The Three Billy Goats Fluff, I’d say it’s a favorite of the kids too.
The Three Billy Goats Fluff is a fractured fairytale telling the story of how the three billy goats fluff befriend the troll. I love this story. It is up there with Fox in the Dark and The Best Pet Ever as my Tiger Tales All Time Favorites. I love how the notes from the troll rhyme, how the mother comes up with an ingenious plan to quiet the trip-trapping hooves, and how the illustrator used bright, cheerful colors. I love reading the troll parts in a big scary voice:)
What funny or heartwarming book have you read to your child lately?
