The second book in the best-selling You Read to Me series features new takes on some of the best-loved fairy tales, including “The Three Bears,” “Cinderella,” and “Little Red Riding Hood.” Like the first book, this one consists of short rhyming dialogues, with each character’s lines indicated by a different color.
The bouncing rhythms and bubbling rhymes carry new readers along merrily from story to story, while Michael Emberley’s lively illustrations enhance the text’s humor and high spirits.

“A wonderful read-aloud experience for two voices…a truly delightful reading ensemble.”
“The brevity, repetition and rhyme help youngsters develop reading skills – all while enjoying the cozy interaction with another reader…should inspire frequent readings as well as a demand for the originals.”
“Even seasoned older readers will love the parody…Emberley’s clear comic- style pictures are hilarious.”
