My First Experience

by Julia on Dec 8, 2013

This was my first experience with this book seller. At first I was worried as the book didn't arrive. I contacted the company and they answered immediately. Not long after, the book arrived in perfect condition. It was well packaged. A good deal!

Strange little book but one my mother loved so I wanted to have a copy. Has to be seen as "folk lore" as it is not meant to be degrading. The illustrations are the best part of the book.


Classic folktale

by GrannyNanny on Dec 17, 2009

Although the story is one found in many cultures -- the dim, literal-minded youth who keeps following yesterdays instructions however inappropriate they may be to today's errand -- this book is NOT politically correct. In this case the dimwit is a black child in the American South, and although the language is wonderful --"Epaminondas, Epaminondas, you ain't got the sense you was born with! You never did have the sense you was born with, you never WILL have the sense you was born with!" -- still it will probably cause a lot of hurt feelings. Can't have that.


Love It!

by AuntiePetey on Oct 19, 2008

This is a book that I grew up reading. I was unable to find it for years. I enjoyed reading the book as much as I did when I was little. I can't wait to share it with my son.


just like I remembered...

I chose this book simply because it was a story that my grandmother use to tell us as children. The actually publication was nearly word for word as my grandmother use to tell! I loved it. It is just a little way to preserve her memory now that she has passed. The illustrations are simply and the story line is fun and enjoyable for children of all ages. ~Rachelle
