The Lovereading4Kids comment

The retellings of eight great stories including E. Nesbit’s The Railway Children and Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden will whet the appetite of readers and encourage them to move onto the classic titles themselves. Each story in this bumper book is illustrated in colour throughout.

The perfect present and a wonderful addition to the popular Illustrated Stories Collections, this title has something for everyone. Eight of the best-loved classics - The Railway Children, The Wizard of Oz, Black Beauty, The Canterville Ghost, The Secret Garden, Around the World in Eighty Days and Heidi and Moonfleet - are brought together in one volume, enchantingly illustrated and beautifully retold for younger readers.
