Product description

Review

"This wonderful book creates a jewel-like world of enchantment studded with Jane Ray's gold-encrusted, richly coloured drawings." The Guardian. "A beautifully produced, well-proportioned book with rich mulberry endpapers and a fine, firm rose-tinted binding. Text and illustrations are set, gilt-edged, against a background of what must surely be swatches of fairy fabrics and enchanted wallpapers." Books for Keeps; "A book of breathtaking beauty" Child Education; "Prepare to be spellbound by (this) stunning collection of... fairy tales... newly woven with passion and power until they echo in the mind. Jane Ray's glittering illustrations add a golden touch and children of all ages will sigh with delight as they explore each word and corner of this magical book." Junior Education --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
