Fairy Tales for Mr. Barker
A Peek-Through Story

author: Jessica Ahlberg

Lucy is reading a fairy tale to Mr. Barker, but her dog has other ideas. When he jumps out the window landing in a cottage with a broken chair, three bowls of porridge, and a little golden-haired girl Lucy is right behind him. Goldilocks would rather not be there when the bears return, so she joins Lucy and Mr. Barker as they continue on their way, adding a trio of pigs, a boy with a goose, and a just-awakened princess during their journey. What happens next? Cutout windows throughout add visual surprises to this lighthearted fractured fairy tale.

Who will Lucy and her dog, Mr. Barker, see on their fairy-tale adventure? Peek through from scene to scene to guess who they might meet next.
