NPM day #8

Did I give you a taste of the great sense of humor to be found in Gail Carson Levine’s “Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It” yesterday?  I hope so!  Because today’s poem (again illustrated by Matthew Cordell) is another one from that collection.  This time it IS a fairy tale allusion and it’s not hard for anyone (kids or adults) to guess which fairy tale is being harpooned and rewritten here.
