9780192781284: The Oxford Treasury of Fairy Tales

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.

From AudioFile:

The title suggests a comprehensive collection, and this production richlyfulfills one's expectations. Here you'll find staples such as "Rapunzel" and "Sleeping Beauty," along with lesser known but equally interesting tales such as "The Flower of Love" and "The Four Friends." This collection is beautifully told by two narrators, Richard Morant and Eve Karpf, both of whom are equally good at creating the many fanciful characters who inhabit these fairy tales. The stories are full of imagination and embellished with the sort of details children love. A worthy addition to a family's listening library, this production will keep all ages of children interested for hours, and parents will relish the experience along with them. J.C.G.
