Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Michael Hague illustrates three collections of time-proven tales. Originally published in 1910, Old Mother West Wind by Thornton W. Burgess introduces a group of enchanting woodland creatures, the Merry Little Breezes, Reddy Fox and Tommy Trout among them, to a new generation of readers. Michael Hague's Favorite Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales offers nine classic stories including The Snow Queen, Thumbelina and The Little Mermaid, all adapted by Jane Woodward. And lastly, Hague portrays the lush habitat of Toad, Mole, Rat and Badger in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows. The handsomely designed oversize volumes present Hague's artwork in framed spreads and spot illustrations, just right for lap reading. (Apr.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
"Aylesworth’s buoyant, rhythmic verse provides inspiration for a wondrous evolution of Gammell’s style.... Sheer delight for eyes, ears, and funny-bones."

    A Chidren's Classic

    These Thornton Burgess stories never wear thin. I enjoyed his writing as a child, and I still enjoy it now that I'm a grandmother.
