Illustrated Tales of Dwarfs, Gnomes and Fairy Folk

We rated this book:


Fairy tales have never gone out of style, and they likely never will. This collection is bound to become a family favorite. There are twenty-two stories, all having a wonderfully old-fashioned feel to the writing that will transport readers to a different time and place. Some of these stories will be very familiar, but many are not well known and will be new to young readers and perhaps even their parents.

While the writing is at a level many elementary school readers can read on their own, the stories are short and make good read-aloud works for younger kids. But the real star of this book is the gorgeous, full-color illustrations that populate almost every page. It isn’t often that only the illustrator’s name appears on the cover and that her name is listed before the writer on the title page. This clearly is a statement that the publisher recognizes that the illustrations are the main selling point for this book.

This book is sure to become a favorite and will likely become worn as youngsters want to read it over and over, especially spending time looking at the beautiful illustrations and searching for all the wonderful details.
