Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this beautifully illustrated book, 14 classic fairy tales are retold for young children. Old favorites, such as "Cinderella" and "Jack and the Beanstalk," are presented alongside some lesser known stories, such as "The Fisherman and his Wife" and "Diamonds and Toads." Mary Hoffman's charming retellings use simple, lyrical language ideal for reading aloud, while Julie Downing's illustrations bring the characters to life. The stories in this collection show the consequences of greed, pride, and vanity, but also tell of the love that grows from a kind heart and a cheerful nature. And along the way, there is a wealth of magic and fun to be enjoyed.

Synopsis:

This collection of 14 best-loved fairy tales are designed with children ages three and up in mind. This makes an ideal bedtime storybook that can be shared by the adult storyteller and young listener, and be enjoyed over and over again. Full-color illustrations.
