Fairy Tales and Fables [hc]
Illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa
Once upon a time in enchanted lands far and wide, there lived a goose that laid golden eggs, a tiny girl who was no bigger than a thumb, and a gingerbread boy who could run like the wind. In these wondrous places, giants have a fine sense of smell, while fairy godmothers can make a spectacular carriage out of a pumpkin. Visit here anytime you like!
There's magic in the 50 fantastic tales and fables, from the competition between "The Hare and the Tortoise" to the plight of "The Ugly Duckling," from the partnership between "The Lion and the Mouse" to the journey taken by "Little Red Riding Hood."
Beautiful color and black-and-white illustrations captivate young and old alike and will add to the fun of reading these timeless stories. Open these pages and you'll find yourself dining with a king, watching tiny Jack being chased by a giant, and swimming with ducklings. 128 pages
