One of my favourite finds from yesterday was this:
This book was published by Hamlyn in 1971. The cover illustrations are by Ron Stenberg. All of the old classic fairy tales are here: Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, The Fisherman’s Wife… I remember all of them from my childhood. What drew me to the book as an adult were the gorgeous illustrations:
I’m planning to enlarge some of the pictures to use in my classroom as display, but also creative writing stimulus. I can also forsee many happy hours spent reading the stories and admiring the different styles of pictures illustrating each tale.
