The Lovereading4Kids comment

Arthur Rackham’s detailed and richly atmospheric illustrations bring these wonderful fairy stories from across the world to life. Originally published in 1916 under the title The Allies Fairy Book, the stories retold here were gathered from the eleven countries fighting together in World War One. Each tells a story that captures something special about the country of its origin. The result is an interestingly diverse collection of stories which together make a powerful statement about countries working together.

Synopsis

Fairy Tales from Many Lands by Arthur Rackham

This enchanting collection of fairy tales from around the world includes some well-known - and some lesser known - magical tales. From England comes the tale of Jack the Giant-Killer, from France Sleeping Beauty. From Italy we have Cesarino and the Dragon, The Adventures of Little Peachling from Japan and The Golden Apple-Tree and the Nine Peahens from Serbia.

Accompanied by the unmistakable illustrations of Arthur Rackham, this collection will delight a whole new generation of readers.

Reviews

The Rackham style, with its grotesque trees and ghoulish creatures, the fairy tales of sylvan glades and classical maidens, have charmed, terrified and delighted generations of adults and children alike . The Telegraph.
