The Three Fishing Brothers Gruff ... by Ben Galbraith
Once upon a time, there were three fishing brothers called Gruff. They were mean and greedy and fished until there were no more fish to be fished in Poverty Bay. But watch out! Minke Whale, Guardian of the Ocean, isn't pleased, and neither are the townspeople of Poverty Bay! The brilliantly conceived text, based loosely on The Three Billy Goats Gruff, is matched by Ben Galbraith's bold, sophisticated artwork. And as you turn the pages, watch for all the die-cut portholes and handy environmental tips. This spectacular picture book debut gives us a timely ecological tale about caring for our environment and protecting the earth's resources. (book description from Amazon)

The Three Silly Girls Grubb ... by John and Ann Hassett
"Skippity-skip-skip. One by one, three silly sisters skip over a bridge on their way to school. Under the bridge h ides Ugly-Boy Bobby--'the kind of boy who eats bugs, tosses stones at cats, and drinks from puddles--the muddier the better.' When the sisters cross the bridge, Ugly-Boy Bobby growls from below. And when he tries to take their lunch of jelly donuts -- The little-sized sister "runs as fast as her little-sized legs can go." The middle-sized sister "runs as fast as her middle-sized legs can go." But when the bigt-sized sister crosses the bridge, she will gladly share her jelly donuts, if Ugly-Boy Bobby will grant her one simple, little request..." (summary from book jacket)

Sody Sallyratus ... retold by Joanne Compton
One fine morning, Jack stops by his mother's cabin to visit her and his two brothers, Topm and Will. Ma goes into the kitchen to make biscuits and discovers that her sody sallyratus is m issing. Without it, she can't bake biscuits and without biscuits, the boys can't eat. First tom, then Will, and finally Ma walk to the store to buy some sody. But when they don't come back, Jack goes to investigate. As he stomps across the rickety footbridge over Cold Water Creek--oops!--he meets a big old hungry bear. Did he eat the others? And will Jack remember to get the sody sallyratus? (from book jacket)

Sody Salleratus .. by Teri Sloat
Sody_Sallyratus_1.jpg
In this tall tale, members of an Appalachian family try to obtain some sody sallyratus, "which is what they used to call bakin' soda," so they can make biscuits. One by one, a boy, girl, old man and old woman tramp over hill and dale to the general store; each stops to nibble berries and gets eaten by a hungry bear. The sole remaining family member, a pet squirrel, must outmaneuver the bear and rescue the foursome. It's a happy ending for all-the bear runs off after spitting out the folks.
