Journey to magical and memorable lands with this long-awaited anthology of classic fairy tales from nine different countries and cultures. Including such favourites as 'Cinderella' and 'The Sleeping Beauty', as well as lesser-known stories like the Ukrainian tale 'The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship', this collection is masterfully told by Malachy Doyle and illustrated in Nicoletta Ceccoli's always charming and thoroughly enchanting style.
Malachy lives on a tiny island off the coast of Donegal, with his wife Liz, Milo the nightcat, Juno the wavedog, and a load of ducks and chickens.
His 90+ books, for young people of all ages, have been translated into 23 different languages and have won many prizes internationally.
Malachy likes walking the beaches and mountains of Donegal, skimming stones in the sea, whistling, drinking Lapsang Souchong tea, making up stories, playing table tennis, going to traditional music sessions, laughing, reading and sleeping.
Malachy's latest publication is The Happy Book, a delightful picture book from Bloomsbury all about being happy.
