“A little girl with a leaky boat
Once had a cabbage, wolf, and goat
To ferry to the other side
Of a river half a mile wide.”
So begins the story in lively verse of an intrepid young girl, who solves an age-old logic conundrum and rows her three passengers across the river without letting the wolf eat the goat or the goat eat the cabbage. The heroic tale in humorous verse is carried along by the little girl’s cleverness and fortitude and the poetry’s capering rhythms. Children will delight in the story and music, and parents will enjoy the wisdom and the wit.
