A good sampler 8 Aug 2006
By Mary Mackay - Published on
Format: Paperback
I picked this up at my university library to inform my classic children's library purchases - it was not disappointing. It contains well chosen extracts from 37 well known classic stories such as the wind in the willows, black beauty, the call of the wild and a Christmas carol. My only gripe is that the introduction by Humphrey Carpenter is not enough - I would have liked to see an introduction to each extract or perhaps some sort of categorization into adventure, fable or younger readers. Overall the selection is good and the extracts long enough to get a feel for the full text.
