Description: Stories from the world's greatest masters of the fairy tale – Andersen, Grimm, and Perrault – are brought together and superbly illustrated in this book. These great storytellers share a profound sense of wonder and a magical imagination, coupled with the gifts of poignancy and humour. These qualities make their tales as vividly exciting today as when they were first told.

Wonderful, full-colour illustrations throughout – many of which are full-page – bring each fairy tale to life. Illustrated pastedowns and endpapers.
