The imaginations of children throughout time have been formed and nurtured by stories passed down from generation to generation.

The first installment of his widely read classics and arguably his best known, The Blue Fairy Book has been admired time and time again, enchanting readers with its carefully crafted prose and eclectic assortment of fairy tales. Originally published in 1889, this collection of celebrated tales has stood the test of time. Some of the famous stories included are: Sleeping Beauty Rumpelstiltzkin Beauty and the Beast Hansel and Gretel Puss in Boots Goldilocks And many more! This beautiful edition comes complete with the original illustrations by Golden Age Illustrator H. J. Ford, and is the perfect gift to pass on these timeless classics to the next generation of readers and dreamers. "I now believe the best word to describe me as an author is spoiled.
