Reviews - What do customers think about Pepper and Salt & The Wonder Clock: Box Set (Foundations)?
Great reading for parents and children Mar 23, 2008
These two wonderful books by Howard Pyle are finally in print in quality hard-covered, slipcased editions. When my children were young, these tales were regular bed-time fare: the tales are well written, the illustrations high quality. If you are involved with your children's bed-time, you'll enjoy these stories and illustrations as much as your children--maybe even more because they treat both parent and child as intelligent.
