Classic Illustrated Princess Stories by Cooper Edens


Classic Illustrated Princess Stories by Cooper Edens

The classic tales in this lavishly illustrated collection have enchanted generations of readers. Here, among others, is the fair Snow White, Rapunzel with her golden trusses, and the princess so delicate that even a small pea hidden under 20 matterasses keeps her awake at night.


Well-chosen artwork by Arthur Rackham, Charles Dulac, and many others charts changing sensibilities from romantic pre-Raphaelitism to the stylized Art Deco of the 1920s

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!
