Description

There once was a little old man who loved looking after his vegetables - they were his pride and joy. His secret of success, he thought, was that he whispered to his seedlings every night. 'Come on, you little seedlings, grow, grow!' His wife thought he was a fool and believed it was her watering that always gave them such a fine crop. One day one of his turnips grew much bigger than the rest. It kept growing until it took up half the garden! The old man and his wife decided to pull it out to feed the whole village, but they weren't strong enough, and had to enlist some help. In scenes of glorious teamwork, the little mouse is the one who finally makes the difference.show more
