Product Description
This is a new tale in a traditional style. Great Uncle Fergus gives a gold coin, a silver coin and a copper coin to his three nieces, Tall One, Middling and Littlest. Now, you can buy lots of lovely things with gold and silver, but what can the Littlest girl do with her copper coin? Why did she get stuck with that one? Large print and uncomplicated text with illustrations on every page make this title ideal for beginner readers.
