Oxford Treasury of Fairy Tales
Fall under the fairy-tale spell in this enchanting treasury.
Retold by renowned children's writer, Geraldine McCaughrean, here are all the best-loved fairy tales and more. Favourites such as Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, the Little Mermaid and the Princess and the Pea are accompanied by other treasures such as the Three Gifts of the North Wind, Cap-of-Rushes, and the Tinderbox. As ever, Geraldine's writing style is original and dramatic, and she weaves magic into her world of knights, witches, frogs, and princesses. Sophy Williams' delicate and atmospheric colour illustrations throughout the collection complement the text beautifully to make this a perfect gift.
