The TALL Book of Nursery Tales

£14.99

Product description

Many of the best-loved traditional children's tales appear in gay and colourful new guise in this unusual 12-inch-high Tall Book. Nearly 100 pictures brilliantly drawn by Feodor Rojankovsky, with 50 in full colour, present a tumbling pageant of familiar friends; "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", "The Three Little Pigs", "The City Mouse and the Country Mouse", "The Tortoise and the Hare", "Chicken Licken", "The Gingerbread Boy", and many others; and also included are less well known but equally delightful stories, such as "The Three Big Sillies", "The Straw, the Coal and the Bean", and "The Pot that would not Stop Boiling".
animal and human characters from the magic world of folklore and fable come vividly to life in this new collection of the favourite stories that parents have always loved to tell their children, and that children of any generation ask to hear over and over again.

Open tear and wear to top/bottom of the dust cover.
Owners dedication inside front page.

Wonder how this unique item ended up online?

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
