A little girl named
Sophie discovers that giants not only exist but that there are a
great many of them who like to guzzle and swallomp nice little "chiddlers".
But not the Big Friendly Giant. He and Sophie cook up an ingenious
plot to free the world of troggle-humping-- forever. The late
Natasha Richardson does an outstanding job with the many voices in
this wonderful book.
Puff the Magic Dragon
by Peter Yarrow and Leonard Lipton
Puff the Magic Dragon is a glorious song about the magic of childhood and what we may leave behind when we grow up. Many of us are familiar with the song by Peter, Paul and Mary. In this CB book, you can listen (and sing along of course), while you enjoy the remarkable illustrations by Eric Puyabaret as he brings to life the Land of Honalee and Jackie Paper's adventures with Puff.
written by Shel Silverstein, performed by Pat Dailey
J COMP DISC 782.42 SILVER
This is a great musical creation for children and their parents. It is witty, and silly, and catchy-- marvelously performed by Pat Dailey. If you want to laugh, sing, dance, and do it with your children again and again, be the first to get the only copy in the library! You'll thank me for the advice.
