The Big Book of Fairy Tales holds true to the rule, that sometimes – the oldest fairy tales are the best! Here is a collection of some of the finest stories from around the globe, including classics from Arabian Nights such as ‘Aladdin’ and ‘Sinbad the Sailor’, Hans Christian Andersen’s best work with ‘The Ugly Ducking’, ‘Little Tin Soldier’ and ‘The Little Match girl’ as well as the archetypal tales from Charles Perrault including ‘Blue Beard’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Puss in Boots.’ Other tales with less well known literary lineages, such as ‘Dick Whittington’ and ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ are also encompassed for the reader’s enjoyment. These stories in this Big Book of Fairy Tales are accompanied by a set of dazzling illustrations from a true master of the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’ – Charles Robinson (1870-1937). An active painter in his own right, and brother of the famous Thomas and William Heath Robinson, his illustrations still delight both young and old over a century later. Robinson started his illustrative career with 100 pen and ink drawings for A Child’s Garden of Verses (1895). The book was an instant hit, and from that point onwards, Robinson continued to illustrate fairy tales and children’s books – with his characteristic style of subtle line, combined with delicate watercolours. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children’s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
