The Lovereading4Kids comment
The seven stories in this collection are robustly and entertainingly re-told by popular illustrator Tony Ross who adds richly to the joy of the tales through his hallmark illustrations. Some such as Rumpelstiltskin, Beauty and the Beast and The Musicians of Bremen are very familiar but it is a delight to be introduced to some new gems such as The Headley Kow. Beautifully published, the book is perfect for every home.

The perfect companion to My Favourite Nursery Rhymes and My First Nursery Stories, Ross’s third magical collection is guaranteed to enchant. This humorous and imaginative collection of classic fairy tales is ideal for reading aloud to young children and it consists of seven easy-to-read stories with hilariously detailed accompanying illustrations. The fairytales include Beauty and the Beast, Fairy Gifts, Prince Hyacinth and the Dear Little Princess, Rumpelstiltskin, Sweet Porridge, The Hedley Kow and The Musicians of Bremen.
