This is a wonderful anthology of timeless tales, retold for a modern audience. All the most popular stories are here, from "Beauty and the Beast" to "The Jungle Book", populated by such well-known characters as Aladdin, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Baloo Bear, Shere Khan, Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty. These delightful new versions of traditional tales have been specially adapted by Lesley Young and carefully worded for small children. Each story is charmingly illustrated on every page by an accomplished children's artist, including work by Jenny Press, Annabel Spenceley and Jenny Williams. It is perfect for reading aloud to the very young, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. This collection contains seven magical stories, each of which is certain to captivate young readers. You can follow Cinderella as she escapes from the cruelty of her ugly stepsisters and meets a prince. You can see Beauty overcome her fear of the frightful Beast. You can be spellbound as a princess is freed from the curse of ever-lasting sleep. You can share in the excitement of John, Wendy, and Michael as they go on adventures with the ageless Peter Pan. You can marvel as Mowgli the man-cub is raised by wild animals. This is an heirloom volume that the whole family will treasure.
