This glorious collection includes all your favourite traditional stories, such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rumplestiltskin, along with some less well-known stories to discover. The book is sumptuously illustrated and decorated with illustrations on every page, generous page layout, and beautiful traditional calligraphy. The story telling is outstanding. We believe this is an important book for Oxford University Press which will become a classic to keep forever. Geraldine McCaughrean has won the Carnegie Medal, the Whitbread Children's Book (twice), the Guardian Children's Book Award, and the Blue Peter Best Book Award. Her retellings of traditional stories and Ancient Myths are acclaimed throughout the world. Sophy Williams studied illustration in London. She was highly commended twice for the Reader's Digest Young Illustrator's Award and was shortlisted for the Mother Goose Prize. She has worked with writer's such as Robert Westall, Michael Rosen and Jill Paton Walsh.

Review:

McCaughrean is one of our foremost storytellers and her retellings are reliably excellent. She has a superb ear for the rhythms of words and an unerring eye for the telling detail. (Daily Telegraph)

A sumptuous collection of fairy stories retold by Geraldine McCaughrean, who has an exceptional ability to spin out the magic of any story. (Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian Review)

A wonderful book to cherish forever. (The School Librarian)
