This description may be from another edition of this product. An illustrated retelling of seven fairy tales including Thumbelina, Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstilskin, Sleeping Beauty, The Emperor's New Clothes, Cinderella, and Puss in Boots.
This is a lavishly illustrated book of fairy tales. Tasha Tudor draws such sweet, loving illustrations of Thumbellina, Sleeping Beauty, Mr. Bun and all of the classic fairy tale characters children love. This would be a beautiful gift for a very young girl. Each story is well and simply told, and the pictures draw a child into the story and the experience of reading, or being read to. I know, it was one of the first books I ever owned, and read.
a beautiful story book

Books illustrated by Tasha Tudor contain as much magic as the stories themselves. This book includes classic fairy tales with beautiful illustrations that children and adults will enjoy. The stories are simple versions and the perfect length for a bedtime story. Not only have I enjoyed this book (received Christmas 1961) but my children also have loved it. And we buy copies when available for grandchildren. It is a shame that it is out of print. Grab a copy while you can!!!

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fairy tales and wonderful illustrations. I still have this book and still enjoy the artistry that Tasha Tudor created for timeless tales.
A Child of the TV Generation Speaks
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 20 years ago
This book was given to me as a gift when I was a small child in the 1960's. The stories it tells and the lush illustrations were a constant thrill for me and I preferred to spend time with this book (and a grandparent's lap -if I could) rather than watch anything TV had to offer. My beloved old copy is now delighting the Nintendo/Internet Generation.
An excellent, traditional story book...

This book contains many of the classic fairy tales, Cinderella, Thumbelina, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, etc. It is beautifully illustrated. I loved this book as a child and fortunately saved it for my own children who also love it. It is very unfortunate that Platt & Munk children's classics are no longer published in some form.
