Unlike her “Fairy Tales from Many Lands“, Katherine Pyle’s “Mother’s Nursery Tales” contains most of the traditional western fairy tales we all grew up with, plus many other less familiar tales which are just as enjoyable to read.
Compiled and illustrated by Katherine Pyle, herein you will find 34 tales like:
- The Sleeping Beauty
- Jack and the Bean Stalk
- Beauty and the Beast
- The Goose Girl
- The Frog Prince
- The Little Old Woman and Her Pig
- The White Cat
- Little Red Riding-Hood
- Aladdin, or the Magic Lamp
- Puss in Boots; and many, many more.
The 7 colour plates and 33 pen and ink drawings by Pyle add depth to the stories and are sure to set young imaginations alight.
This volume is sure to keep you and your young ones enchanted for hours, if not because of the quantity, then their quality. They will have you coming back for more time after time.
