Overview

This book forms part of our 'Pook Press' imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in children's literature. This work contains a collection of stories including Charles Perrault's 'Hop O' My Thumb', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Cinderella' and 'Bluebeard', traditional English tales such as 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and 'Dick Whittington' as well as tales from Arabian nights such as 'Ali Baba', 'Aladdin' and 'Sinbad the Sailor.' True masterpieces of the genre such as Hans Christian Anderson's 'The Emperors New Clothes', 'The Ugly Duckling' and 'The Princess and the Pea' are also included. This book further comprises a series of dazzling colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration, his artistry still delights both young and old over a century later. The fairy tales in their original translations are presented here, alongside Rackham's beautiful images and a preface by the illustrator himself.
