When Peter Rabbit is invited to a housewarming party by one of the Three Little Pigs, a behind-the-scenes adventure begins to unfold. This collection of previously unseen letters from the land of make-believe offers us a rare and fresh glimpse into the lives of well-loved characters. Along the way, Goldilocks makes a much happier return visit to the Bears' house, finds Peter Rabbit's lost jacket, and befriends Little Red Riding Hood. This delightful tale of interconnecting friendships, written by Alma Flor Ada and enhanced by Leslie Tryon's detailed and engaging pictures, is sure to warm the hearts of young and old alike.
