Collected by Joseph Jacobs
Illustrated by John D Batten
At the end of the 19th Century, one of England’s greatest folklorist (and a mighty storyteller!) brought to life so very many of the folk tales succeeding generations have loved as their own. The kings and queens, the wicked giants, clever youngests sons, talking animals and trees, magic cloaks – all are the ingredients of wonderful stories that stir the imagination and delight the heart.
In this volume you’ll find many tales you already know and many that will be new to you. “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “The Story of the Three Bears,” “Henny Penny,” and 40 more await you and your children.
