The original publishers offer in this volume well known and long loved and extremely well illustrated stories to their young readers. These tales have had delighted the children of many generations and will be equally welcome in the nurseries of the present day, which, with the popularity and antiquity of the contents of the volume, justify them in styling it The World-Wide Nursery Book. But why a "World-Wide book of Nursery Tales?" Take the story of Cinderella for example…..Many people believe this was written by the Grimm Brothers, but you would be incorrect. Charles Perrault (1628 - 1703) had identified, translated and published the tale of Cinderella at least 50 years before the Grimm Brothers translated the tale from French into German. There is still debate as to whether the story originated in ancient Egypt or China. In ancient Egypt a fragment of a papyrus records a part of the story which is titled The Lost Sandal. There are also fragments of recordings in ancient China. It is believed it then migrated West as trade between the East and West increased. There is also debate as to whether it originated in China and made its way to Egypt along trade routes before crossing the Middle East and arriving in Europe to become the tale we know today. So who wrote the original? The answer is simple. No-one knows, and its true author and country of origin are never likely to be known, but it is certainly a story with world-wide origins as are most of the stories in this book. Hence, we believe the name is fitting. The stories in this book are: Red Riding-Hood. Puss-In-Boots. Mother Hubbard. Cock Robin's Death. Jack And Bean-Stalk. Tom Thumb. Cinderella. The Three Bears. Punch And Judy Removed The Pets. PLUS Nursery Songs. Nursery Rhymes. Nursery Ditties. Nursery Tales. Nursery Jingles. The 112 colour illustrations in the classic style bring added life to the tales and rhymes enabling younger children to visualise the story being told. PUBLISHER’S NOTE: The original publication of this book included the nursery rhyme “Punch and Judy”. Due to the propagation of domestic violence and themes of gratuitous violence which result in death, portrayed in this tale, the publisher has not deemed this poem suitable for children, nor even adults, and have elected to remove it from this book. 10% of the profit from the sale of this eBook will be donated to charities. ============ KEYWORDS/TAGS: Folklore, fairy tales, myths, legends, folk tales, story, children’s stories, bedtime, fables, culture, cultural, Red Riding-Hood, Puss In Boots, Old Mother Hubbard, Cock Robin's Death, Jack And Bean Stalk, Tom Thumb, Cinderella, The Three Bears, Pets, Nursery Songs, Rhymes, Ditties, Jingles, sheep, Marquis Of Carrabas, Castle, princess, prince, mill, inheritance, frighten, reapers, marry, cupboard, dog, dance, cat, pipe, tavern, statue, Linnet, dove, fish, fly, owl, bell, bull, rook, lark, cow, beans, climb, gold, harp, ogre, giant, fee fie fo fum, hen, Golden Eggs, King, Arthur, Eagle, Ball, Coach, Fine Dress, Royal Ball, Glass Slipper, Porridge, Sleep, Bed, Rabbits, Cow, Donkey, Cock, Hen, Chickens, Horse, Goat, Pig, Dog, Little Miss Muffet, Curds, Whey, Pat-A-Cake, Humpty-Dumpty, Robin Redbreast, Little Boy Blue, Little Pig Went To Market, Little Jack Horner, Baa, Baa, Black Sheep, Pretty Maid, Mary, Quite Contrary, Little Bo-Peep, Hot Cross Buns, Hey Diddle Diddle, Cat And The Fiddle, Dish, Spoon, Queen Of Hearts, Goosey, Goosey Gander, Little Polly Flinders, Ding Dong Bell, Pussy, Well, Simple Simon, Pies, Fair, Guy Fawkes, Remember, Fifth Of November, 5th, Little Tom Tucker, Where Are You Going, My Pretty Maid, Ride A Cock-Horse, Sing A Song Of Sixpence, Tom, Tom, The Piper's Son, Old King Cole, Hush-A-By Baby

The Big Book of Fairy Tales holds true to the rule, that sometimes – the oldest fairy tales are the best! Here is a collection of some of the finest stories from around the globe, including classics from Arabian Nights such as ‘Aladdin’ and ‘Sinbad the Sailor’, Hans Christian Andersen’s best work with ‘The Ugly Ducking’, ‘Little Tin Soldier’ and ‘The Little Match girl’ as well as the archetypal tales from Charles Perrault including ‘Blue Beard’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Puss in Boots.’ Other tales with less well known literary lineages, such as ‘Dick Whittington’ and ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ are also encompassed for the reader’s enjoyment. These stories in this Big Book of Fairy Tales are accompanied by a set of dazzling illustrations from a true master of the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’ – Charles Robinson (1870-1937). An active painter in his own right, and brother of the famous Thomas and William Heath Robinson, his illustrations still delight both young and old over a century later. Robinson started his illustrative career with 100 pen and ink drawings for A Child’s Garden of Verses (1895). The book was an instant hit, and from that point onwards, Robinson continued to illustrate fairy tales and children’s books – with his characteristic style of subtle line, combined with delicate watercolours. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children’s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
