Publisher Comments:

The New York Review Children's Collection began in 2003 in an attempt to reward readers who have long wished for the return of their favorite children’s titles and to introduce those books to a new generation. The line publishes picture books for preschoolers through to chapter books and novels for older children. Praised for their elegant design and sturdy bindings, these books set a new standard for the definition of a "classic."

 

Among the 52 titles included in this collection you will find Esther Averill's time-honored Jenny and the Cat Club series; several titles by the award-winning team of Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire, including their Book of Norse Myths and Book of Animals; James Thurber's The Thirteen Clocks and The Wonderful O, both with illustrations by Marc Simont; Daniel Pinkwater’s weird and wacky Lizard Music; Alison Uttley’s time-travel classic A Traveller in Time; and Palmer Brown’s intricately illustrated books Beyond the Pawpaw Trees and holiday favorite Something for Christmas.

 

The New York Review Children's Collection brings time-tested children's and young adult literature to your bookshelf in sturdy, well-crafted hardback editions designed to last for generations. The covers feature a unified series design by award-winning designer Louise Fili and all interior materials are carefully selected to reflect the period of original publication. Each book has a three-piece, paper-over-board cover, cloth spine, and coordinating head- and foot-bands. All text is printed on acid-free paper stock and many titles include original endpapers, line art, and full-color illustrations.

 

This collection includes one each of the following titles:

With Marjorie Winslow’s timeless guide on hand, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do in your backyard or by the seashore; you’ll be busy scooping up sand (a filling for Stuffed Sea Shells), hunting for flower petals (they make lovely hors d’oeuvres), and collecting raindrops (essential for brewing up Fried Water). The book is organized by course, and includes a general discussion of yard cookery along with detailed ingredient lists, methods for preparation, and helpful serving suggestions. And on every page, Erik Blegvad’s delightful pen-and-ink drawings ensure that Mud Pies and Other Recipes is a feast for the eyes as well as the imagination.
