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.
