Publisher Comments:

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of publishing classics of children's literature, we have put together a special set of our 20 best-selling titles for all ages.

Among the 20 titles included in this collection are books from Esther Averill's time-honored Jenny and the Cat Club series;  titles by the award-winning team of Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire, including their Book of Norse Myths; James Thurber's The 13 Clocks and The Wonderful O, both with illustrations by Marc Simont; Daniel Pinkwater's weird and wacky Lizard Music; and holiday favorites The Box of Delights by John Masefield and Something for Christmas by Palmer Brown.

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 includes picture books for preschoolers through to chapter books and novels for older children. Praised for their elegant design and sturdy bindings, the books set a new standard for the definition of a "classic."  

The covers feature a unified series design 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.

The New York Review Children's Collection 10th Anniversary Set includes one copy of each of these 20 titles:

Synopsis:

In this spectacular follow-up to their beloved Book of Norse Myths, the husband-and-wife team of Ingri and Edgar Parin dAulaire explore the uncanny reaches of Norse mythology, an enchanted night-world populated by trolls of all kinds—mountain trolls, forest trolls, trolls who live underwater and trolls who live under bridges, uncouth, unkempt, unbreakable, unforgettable, and invariably unbelievably ugly trolls—who work their wiles and carry on in the most bizarre and entertaining fashions.

With their matchless talent as storytellers and illustrators, the dAulaires bring to life the weird and wonderful world of Norse mythology.

About the Author

Edgar Parin dAulaire (1898-1986) studied art in Germany and France, and apprenticed with Henri Matisse. In Munich, he met Ingri Mortenson (1904-1980), a Norwegian-born art student. They married, emigrated to America, and began a long career together in which they published over twenty picture books for children, including Abraham Lincoln, which won the 1940 Caldecott Medal.
