PICKITY PLACE

  • Posted Oct. 24, 2010 by Joe Viewed 1110 times

Pickity Place is a total sensory experience. Old English gardens are bursting with flowers and fresh herbs and a history that dates back to the 17th century.

The main house was the illustrative site for the 1948 English edition of Little Red Ridinghood,
by Elizabeth Orton Jones.

One day her mother said, here Little Red Ridinghood is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine; take them to your grandmother, Set out before it gets hot, and when you are going, walk nicely and quietly and do not run off the path and don't peep into every corner

So she peeked behind the shed

Then the Drying Shed

And then at a pretty window

As Little Red Riding Hood entered the woods

The Big Bad Wolf says, why don't you look around at how sweetly the little birds are

Little Red Riding Hood raised her eyes, when she saw the sunbeams dancing through the trees

The wolf without saying a word he went straight to the grandmother's bed, and devoured her. Then he put on her clothes, dressed himself in her cap, laid himself in bed.

      My daughters favourite bedtime story , she was always amazed at how short the story was when her dad read it to her compared to her mum's version.
      Fantastic set.
