Gyo Fujikawa creates magic with this enchanting collection of fairy tales and fables. These are the stories that all children should experience, that will nourish their young minds and imaginations: Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, The Hare and the Tortoise, The Little Red Hen, The Three Little Pigs, and many more. Some are well known and beloved; others are unfamiliar, but they’re all beautifully written and illustrated. As always, Fujikawa’s characters (human and animal) are endearing and rich in personality. Her stunning images include the ugly duckling looking up plaintively at swans flying in a sunset sky; a lovely princess atop dozens of colorful mattresses (but she can still feel the pea); and tiny Jack chased by a giant large enough to take up nearly an entire spread!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My children loved Fujikawa books when they were young - I try to find them whenever I need to puchase a baby/toddler gift.
Old fashioned illustrations, full pages. Lay out is very nice and easy to read. It's a large sized book, very good condition. I would recommend A Child's Garden of Verse. Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
