    When my youngest son was 2 (he is now 25) each night I read him Grogre the Ogre or Grogre the Golden Ogre from a compendium of stories. He didn’t want any other story. By 2 1/2 he knew both verbatim !
    In my view these are amongst the best written and illustrated stories for children!
    Congratulations to all concerned.
