Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gyo Fujikawa creates magic with this enchanting collection of fairy tales and fables. These are the stories that all children should experience, that will nourish their young minds and imaginations: Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, The Hare and the Tortoise, The Little Red Hen, The Three Little Pigs, and many more. Some are well known and beloved; others are unfamiliar, but theyre all beautifully written and illustrated. As always, Fujikawas characters (human and animal) are endearing and rich in personality. Her stunning images include the ugly duckling looking up plaintively at swans flying in a sunset sky; a lovely princess atop dozens of colorful mattresses (but she can still feel the pea); and tiny Jack chased by a giant large enough to take up nearly an entire spread!

Synopsis:

Now part of the Folk Tale Classics series, Paul Galdoneand#8217;s version of the story an enterprising young man, a tiny magic bean, and a giant adventure is not to be missed! With lustrous, foil-accented covers and lively illustrations, these retellings are perfect for collecting and gift-giving.

Synopsis:

Young readers are sure to delight in Galdone's version of this classic story, and the lively illustrations and rhythmic storytelling make it perfect for reading aloud with little ones. With a gorgeous cover in keeping with the rest of the Folk Tale Classics series, the story of Jack and his magic bean has never been more irresistible.

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

I had this book as a little boy 30 years ago, and recently was wracking my brain to remember the title. Just today the authors last name Fujikawa popped into my head and voila! This book always held magic for me as a child and I hope that it does for you or your children as well. I will now always give this to anyone with a new child.
