The best illustrated fairytales for children!

Once upon a time was a little girl called Goldilocks because of her wonderful blond hair. One day, as she was wandering in the forest, she discovered a beautiful cottage that seemed to be empty. Goldilocks, very curious, decided to come into the house and visit the different rooms. Exhausted, she ended up sleeping in one of the beds. She could not hide her surprise when she woke up and saw three bears looking at her!

The collection "Once Upon a Time" offers a new and richly illustrated version of the most famous fairytales.

EXCERPT

Once upon a time, there lived a pretty little girl with curly golden hair. Her name was Goldilocks. One day, however, as the curious little girl wandered into the forest, she got lost. She found a little cottage and went to look inside. As no one answered the door and seeing no one inside while peeking through the windows, she decided to enter into the cottage. Inside, Goldilocks saw three bowls of porridge still steaming on the kitchen table. They all had different sizes: a big one, a medium one and a small one! As she was quite hungry from her walk through the forest, she took the small bowl without any hesitation and ate the porridge avidly.

The best illustrated fairytales for children!

Once upon a time there was a little boy who was celebrating his birthday. As a gift, he received a box filled with little soldiers made of tin, a cardboard castle and a ballerina dressed in a pink dress.
One of the little tin soldiers only had one leg. Soon, he noticed the ballerina because she was standing on one of her legs only. The little soldier immediately fell in love with her and tried to talk to her. Unfortunately, the wind was about to disturb his plans...

EXCERPT

Once upon a time, there was a little boy who was given a box of toy tin soldiers as a birthday present. They were all identical, except one, who strangely only had one leg. The boy also received a castle made of cardboard and a pretty female ballet dancer dressed in a pink tutu, which had a golden flower on it. She stretched out her arms and stood gracefully on one leg as if she was dancing. The little tin soldier noticed the ballerina very quickly. “Hey, we look alike!” thought the soldier.
“It looks like she’s only got one leg, just like me. And she is so pretty!”
He immediately fell in love.

Old French Fairy Tales is a collection of french folklore and fairytales, penned by Sophie Rostopchine, Countess of Ségur (1799 – 1874). Ségur was a French writer of Russian birth, best known today for her novel Les Malheurs de Sophie (Sophie’s misfortunes), intended for children. The anthology contains stories split into four categories: ‘Blondine, Bonne-Biche, and Beau-Minon’, ‘Good Little Henry’, ‘Princess Rosette’, ‘Little Gay Mouse’ and ‘Ourson’.

The stories in Old French Fairy Tales are accompanied by the truly beautiful illustrations of Virginia Frances Sterrett (1900 – 1931). Presented alongside the text, her illustrations further refine and elucidate Ségur’s masterful storytelling. Sterrett was an American artist and illustrator – one of the most talented, though also most tragic, of the ‘Golden Age’ illustrators. Sterrett’s illustrations are delicate yet powerful, inspired by the tradition of Art Nouveaux with its light washes of colour and sinuous black lines. She only completed three works in her lifetime, due to her early death from tuberculosis at the age of thirty-one. These include Old French Fairy Tales (1920), Tanglewood Tales (1921) and Arabian Nights (1928).

Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
