“Bah!” said Scrooge. “Humbug. ” Christmas calls for a reading of A Christmas Carol! Charles Dickens’s story of mean old Ebenezer Scrooge who hates Christmas and refuses to celebrate or even allow others to celebrate. But then, one year, he is visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley who warns Scrooge of the misery he is piling up in the future. Can Scrooge change his ways? And what will Christmas be like afterwards? Paired with the original illustrations by Arthur Rackham this is a gift edition for all ages.
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.
Twenty of the Brothers Grimm best-loved tales including Snowdrop, a version of the Snow White story, and Rumpelstiltskin are retold on this beautiful edition which is richly illustrated by Arthur Rackham who brings out darkness, magic and overwhelming love – all of which lie at the heart of the Grimm stories.
This Calla Edition of fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm is drawn from the mammoth collection first published in 1909 and illustrated by Arthur Rackham. His 40 full-colour plates, plus innumerable black-and-white spot elements, get sensitive treatment in a design that retains the best features of the original, including the ornate gilt stamping on the case. This is really a book to treasure and will last more than a lifetime. Also selected by Jenny Downham, January 2011 Guest Editor: "This was the second book I was given on my eleventh birthday. Here are sorcerers and thieves and murderers and lost children and wicked adults and buckets of blood! Many stories we know well, such as Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel and Cinderella have their roots in an ancient folk tradition which doesn’t provide a sanitised happy ending. In this version of Snow-White, for instance, the wicked queen is given burning hot iron slippers to wear as a punishment and is forced to dance to her death."
Rebecca Solnit retells 'Cinderella'. A Fairy Tale Revolution is here to remix and revive our favourite stories. 'She looked like a girl who was evening, and an evening that had become a girl...' In the kitchen, in her rags, Cinderella, longs to go to the ball. After all, there is nothing worse than not being invited to the party. Enter her fairy godmother... But that is where the familiar story ends. Cinderella's transformation turns out to be much less about ballgowns, glass slippers and carriages, and much more about finding her truest self. Finally free from the kitchen cinders, who will she turn out to be? *Recommended for ages 6 and up*

Far from fading with time, Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of fantasy has attracted a growing audience in each generation. Rat, Mole, Badger and the preposterous Mr Toad (with his 'Poop-poop-poop' road-hogging new motor-car), have brought delight to many through the years with their odd adventures on and by the river, and at the imposing residence of Toad Hall. Grahame's book was later dramatised by A. A. Milne, and became a perennial Christmas favourite, as Toad of Toad Hall. It continues to enchant and, above all perhaps, inspire great affection.
