Multcolib My Librarian Darcee: Enchanted Forest: Companion reads

Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty By Petelinsek, Kathleen (Book - 2011 ) jE PETELINSE 2011 Available in some locations

Annotation:While I'm saddened that the Enchanted Forest's Humpty took a fall, it's a perfect opportunity to renew your child's interest in this classic. Seldom does the opportunity arise to tell your child that Humpty Dumpty really took a fall- in REAL life!

The Three Little Pigs
The Three Little Pigs A Folk Tale Classic By Galdone, Paul (Book - 2011 ) jE GALDONE 2011 Available in some locations

Annotation:I adore Paul Galdone's 70s versions of classic folk tales and this one is no exception. Not entirely cleaned up : Two pigs get eaten and the wolf is boiled in a tasty stew before we get to 'happily ever after.'

Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland
Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland By Scieszka, Jon (Book - 2008 ) jE SCIESZKA 2008 Available in some locations

Annotation:Does claustrophobia and age prevent you from crawling through the rabbit hole? No worries- Wonderland awaits you in this Disney classic.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland By Carroll, Lewis (Book - 2004 ) j CARROLL Available in some locations

Annotation:For purists, older listeners and for those with an aversion to Disney.

The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm
The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (Book - 2011 ) 398.20943 G8644f 2011 Available in some locations

Annotation:A gorgeously presented treasury of the Grimm Fairy Tales for older listeners and grown ups alike.

Pinocchio By Collodi, Carlo (Book - 2001 ) j 398.2 C714pe 2001 Available in some locations

Annotation:You'll need Collodi's story to explain to you child just what is happening in the Enchanted Forest's beautifully odd diorama of 'a piece of wood with a mind of its own.'

My Very First Mother Goose
My Very First Mother Goose (Book - 1996 ) jE MOTHER Available in some locations

Annotation:A great introduction to Mother Goose for wee little ones.

Hansel and Gretel
Hansel and Gretel By Rylant, Cynthia (Book - 2008 ) jE RYLANT 2008 Available in some locations

Annotation:A retelling of the well-known tale in which two children lost in the woods find their way home despite an encounter with a wicked witch who wants to eat them- with beautiful illustrations by the amazing Jen Corace.

The Enchanted Forest
The Enchanted Forest And Its Family By Tofte, Mavis (Book - 2001 ) 791.068 T644e 2001 In-library use only in some locations

Annotation:You'll have to swing by your library to view the family history of the development of Oregon's Enchanted Forest theme park with colored photos. It shows the struggle of a young family and one man's dream and how to do it on a shoe string. From a undeveloped land, no savings and little income, this dream became Oregon's oldest family owned theme park.

Visiting the Enchanted Forest has been an Oregonian family tradition since the 1970s. Now that Humpty Dumpty is being put back together again, you're going to want to plan your next visit. Why not take the opportunity to read up on some of the characters you'll encounter on Storybook Lane?
