Product Description

This volume is titled for its first story — “The Thirteen Little Black Pigs” — but it contains eight delightful tales from Mrs. Molesworth, not thirteen little black pigs. There’s “Right Hand and Left,” a tale of sybling rivalry, and things even more unsettling; “A Shilling of Halfpence,” the story of an old woman to whom shillings and halfpence are serious money, “A Friend in Need,” “Pansy’s Pansy,” “Pet’s Half-Crown,” “A Catapult Story,” and at the end — “A Very Long Lane,” and it’s indeed a long, long road. Children’s’ fiction from an amazingly talented Victorian writer.
