Glorious full-color illustrations grace every page of this charming storybook by a beloved Victorian-era artist. A prominent member of the Arts and Crafts movement, Walter Crane was among the most popular and influential creators of children's books in his day. This original compilation unites the best folktales from Crane's Toy Books, a colorful series of individual volumes. Brief renditions of "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Puss in Boots," and other favorites combine Crane's imaginative woodblock illustrations with an inset of rhyming text. The effect suggests an early version of the graphic novel, ideal for bedtime storytelling. This beautiful new edition will delight both parents and children.
