    By

    A beautifully illustrated anthology featuring fourteen classic children's fairy-tales, perfect for bedtime, as retold by children's author Mary Hoffman. As well as favourites such as Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk, A First Book of Fairy Tales also includes some wonderful stories that you might not know, such as The Fisherman and his Wife and Diamonds and Toads. Introduce your little one to the characters that enchanted you as a child, or meet the cast of a new story together. Mary Hoffman's charming retellings use simple language, ideal for reading or hearing aloud, while Julie Downing's stunning illustrations bring the characters to life, so children can follow and enjoy the fairy tales through the pictures.
