Again, I enjoy the short story format. These are the perfect length to read aloud at then end of the school day or to begin the day with. There are unexpected turns and the stories are quite unpredictable, which leaves the reader hanging on until the end. The character transformations which are characteristic of folktales would be fun to predict and check with students. Once again, Sharkey did a great job illustrating the mood and events in these stories. My favorite story is The White Rat (france)
