Meanwhile, Pinocchio and Half-Chicken have set out on adventures of their own, and Tortoise and Hare are off to the races. Will they all find their happy endings? "Hidden Forest News" has got the scoops.
Written and laid out in newspaper format, this installment in the enchanting Hidden Forest series has received a new twist from Alma Flor Ada and Leslie Tryon. All of your favorite fairy-tale characters from "Dear Peter Rabbit"; "Yours Truly, Goldilocks"; and "With Love, Little Red Hen" are back, but this time they are hitting the presses and making headlines.
