Synopsis

Family Favorites by Grimm Brothers, Jacob Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen

A delightful boxed set of four classic fairy tales, ideally suited for shared family reading. Includes The Emperor's New Clothes, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Elves and the Shoemaker and The Gingerbread Man from the Abbeville Classic Fairy Tales series. Fairy tales, unlike children, never age, and the most enduring fairy tale collections combine concise, engaging storytelling with colorful, charming illustrations. Now four of these classic stories, popular with families throughout the world, have been gathered into just such a collection: Family Favorites. Whether they are fully familiar with the stories or experiencing them for the first time, young readers will delight in the mischief of the little girl in Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the magic of the tiny heroes of The Elves and the Shoemaker, the silliness and truth contained in the fable of The Emperor's New Clothes, and the surprise ending of the mouth-watering tale of The Gingerbread Man. Parents will have their own fun sharing these classics with the little ones, and remembering them for themselves. Rendered in clear, compelling language perfect for early readers, the stories are accompanied by whimsical and imaginative artwork that brings them vividly to life, as well as a picture game at the end of each tale that helps children sort out and remember what they have read. A lovely addition to any living room bookshelf, Family Favorites is sure to become as much a tradition as the stories themselves.
