The Lovereading4Kids comment

There are fairy tales from all over the world gathered together in this very attractive collection some of which, such as Dick Whittington and Goldilocks and the Three Bears will be very familiar to the audience, while others such as The King’s Pudding, an Indonesian story of the little deer who outwits a tiger, will likely be brand new. Told briskly and cheerfully in short sentences they’re just right for children to read on their own, but also make ideal bedtime reading. There are bright, bold full colour illustrations on every page and a glossary at the back with information on the origin of the stories too. ~ Andrea Reece


Tales for Little Children by Various Authors

A collection of nine much-loved stories from around the world, beautifully retold and colourfully illustrated for little children. Follow Goldilocks into the woods to the three bears' cottage, climb a beanstalk with Jack, come face to face with a genie in a magical Arabian adventure, and lots more.

Each story is brought to life with evocative, colourful illustrations and a very simple text. A joy to read aloud and share, and a lovely gift.

Includes the classic tales Aladdin, Goldilocks, Jack and the Beanstalk and six more magical tales.
