Quick Overview

The story of a little boy in the country with just Mum and the cat for company and feeling rather dull. But the pictures tell a very different story - Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood, Humpty Dumpty and lots of storybook characters, and the boy still thinks it's been a dull day.


The day is really rather dull for a little boy in the middle of the country with just Mum and the cat for company. Nothing happens, no one comes by he says, anyway. - But the pictures tell a very different story! There are the Three Bears and Goldilocks; The Three Little Pigs building their houses; Little Red Riding Hood and a Big Bad Wolf; a witch flying about on a broomstick; Humpty Dumpty climbing up on to a wall; a giant stamping about the countryside; a cat and a fiddle and a cow jumping over the moon. All around the little boy exciting things are happening - but at the end of the day, the little boy yawns and tells his father, "Nothing much happened round here today"! Vivian French's books include the fiction titles "Zenobia and Mouse", "Under the Moon" and "Tillie McGillie's Fantastical Chair" the picture books "Princess Primrose", "Lazy Jack" (1995) and "A Song for Little Toad" (1995) and the Read and Wonder books "The Apple Trees", "Spider Watching" and "Caterpiller Caterpiller" (shortlisted for the Kurt Maschler Award).
