This is a silly little old folk tale enhanced with big silly illustrations. The old Hungarian story is about three tailors, all brothers, who rode into town on their nanny goat to see the sights. They were put in the stocks after they lived it up and then proved to be unable to pay for their amusement, and after a futile getaway attempt on their goat. But they learned their lesson--get a billy-goat, ""it can run much faster than a nanny goat!"" The author/illustrator has let his bright, deep colors run together to show a rowdy view of a Hungarian village. The Three Poor Tailors can be counted on to keep a very young audience in stitches.
