ENGLISH FABLES AND FAIRY STORIES

For the first volume in a projected new series presents a collection of familiar stories very companionably retold by a British poet and critic. Among the nineteen selections are the standbys- The Story of Tom Thumb. Jack and the Beanstalk, Dick Whittington and his Cat etc., and the friendly, full length interpretations set the pattern for the whole book. Good reading; good story hour material decorated with fanciful two-tones by Joan Kiddell-Monroe. Future titles will include collections of Scottish, Irish and Welsh folk-tales.
