Now the beloved artist-author of books for children has created a richly illustrated companion book of nursery tales, chosen from among the fairy tales and folk tales, the fables and poems he most loved as a boy. The result is a collection that offers variety and enjoyment for the whole family. From the oldest to the youngest, everyone will find a favorite, whether it be "The Little Red Hen," "The Emperor's New Clothes," "Rumpelstiltskin" or "The Owl and the Pussycat." Always keeping the youngest child in mind, Tomie dePaola has selected from the works of Hans Christian Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, Joseph Jacobs, Aesop, P. C. Asbjornsen, and poets Stevenson, Longfellow and Lear. Older readers will appreciate the wit and style Tomie dePaola brings to his illustrations, while younger children will respond to his infallible sense of fun, his use of brilliant colors and his original interpretations of wonderful characters who have remained the favorites of generations of children. A basic, full collection, just right for every family to share. Book jacket.
