From the Publisher

“Usually, books of this quality are heavy hard covers with gilt edges that are tough to prop up while reading in bed...Detailed black and white illustrations on just about every other page are charming. The entire format is friendly and appealing, making the book wonderfully accessible for young children. ” —Children's Literature

Usually, books of this quality are heavy hard covers with gilt edges that are tough to prop up while reading in bed. At first glance this book is just a humble paperback. Yet, it's called a "Treasury of Stories," and that it truly is. It's a galaxy of fine literature, with many well-known authors such as Issac Bashevis Singer, Arthur Ransome, Rudyard Kipling, and Hans Christian Andersen telling classic and wonderful tales. There are also contemporary stories that are all about today's boys and girls. This refreshing mix creates a bridge between the far-away fairy tale and everyday life now. Detailed black and white illustrations on just about every other page are charming. The entire format is friendly and appealing, making the book wonderfully accessible for young children. It is part of the" series. 2004, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 5 to 8.

My wife and I have given this book to several of our adopted Grandkids and they all have enjoyed reading it both aloud to the families and to themselves. I recommend this book highly.
