Relive the magic of classic fairy tales in this beautifully illustrated edition.

For centuries fantastical stories of witches, giants, princesses, talking animals, and magical kingdoms have been passed from generation to generation. Many of the fairy tales we are most familiar with today have their roots in this oral tradition of storytelling.

The World Treasury of Fairy Tales and Folklore is a stunning collection of fairy tales organized by date of printing. From tales of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries (Little Red Riding HoodFair GoldilocksBeauty and the Beast), to familiar tales collected by The Brothers Grimm in the 19th century (The Frog King, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Snow White), to some lesser-known tales and stories from outside Europe, this book showcases a broad range of examples from this extraordinary genre. Tales are compiled and introduced by leading academics in the field, adding to a deeper understanding of beloved stories. This beautifully illustrated collection of fairy tales and folklore is an essential addition to all family libraries.
