The End

David LaRochelle
illustrated by Richard Egielski 2007
This book has been on heavy rotation for Charlotte.  It's a clever way to tell a story- from the end to the beginning!  It starts off with "And they all lived happily ever after."

And then, "They lived happily ever after because...", and the story of a prince falling in love with a clever princess, a giant unhappy about his dessert, and a runaway tomato is told in reverse.  I love the pictures and the tag line on the flap:  "You've never had so much fun going backwards!"
