My Book of Nursery Stories

£12.99

Product description

This delightful large-print, hardback book features every child's favorite fairly tale characters including Little Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast, Jack and the Bean-Stalk, Old Mother Goose, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, Hop o' My Thumb, Teeny-Tiny, The Sleeping Beauty, The Babes in the Wood, Jack the Giant-Killer. Each story or poem features one full colour page drawing and several small black and white pictures to illustrate the tale.

The book is well-worn as expected when read by children, however the binding is still firm and all pages are intact. There are some small pen/crayon marks on the cover and a small pencil scribble on the first empty page but otherwise the main wear is from finger marks on the border of pages where they have yellowed. There are one inch rips at the tail end of pages where they have been turned to quickly and torn but they generally don't affect reading.

This book would be perfect for children beginning to read longer stories or as a collectors items.
