This book forms part of our 'Pook Press' imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in children's literature. Edited by Harry Golding, it contains thirty colour plates and eighteen other illustrations, all by Margaret Tarrant. The tales include classics such as Perrault's 'Puss in Boots', 'Blue Beard' and 'Cinderella' as well as the Brothers Grimm's 'Little Red Riding Hood' and 'Sleeping Beauty'. Mme. D'Aulnoy's archetypal 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' appears beside Old English stories such as 'Jack, the Giant Killer' and 'Dick Whittington'. The stories are here accompanied by the dazzling colour illustrations of Margaret Tarrant (1888-1959). She was a much celebrated English illustrator who specialised in depictions of fairy-like children and religious subjects; a pioneering woman in the male-dominated world of fine-art. The fairy tales are presented here in their original translations, alongside Tarrant's beautiful images.This book forms part of our a#39;Pook Pressa#39; imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in childrena#39;s literature.
