In this Armenian version, the three little karnoogs (lambs) set out into Jermuk, Armenia to build their own homes and make their Mayreeg (mother) proud. However, a wicked kayl (wolf) is determined to eat a karnoog meal, disguising himself as a neighbor bringing pakhlava and a boy selling Jermuk Mineral Water. Houses are blown down, and more devilish tricks are unveiled, until finally, the kayl ends up with a burned voreeg (butt) in some hot madzoon aboor (yogurt soup). Exciting full- color illustrations bring the story to life, depicting beautiful Armenian landscapes and characters that look stereotypically Armenian. The Three Little Karnoogs is written in Arm-English (English with some Armenian words) and includes a glossary and pronunciation guide to help readers learn the meanings of the words and to pronounce them correctly. A delight for Armenian children!
