Clever Beatrice


Can a very little girl beat a very LARGE giant in feats of strength? That's what clever Beatrice bets on when she marches through the north woods to the home of the giant, hoping to win some of his gold to help her mother buy porridge. The giant heartily agrees to a contest, never imagining the wisp of a girl could out-muscle him. But what he hasn't counted on is how clever Beatrice is ... and that brains beat brawn every time. (Reading Level: Grade K-3)
