OLD TIME'S CHILDREN'S STORIES PLUS FREE CHILDREN'S ACTIVITY COLOURING BOOK

The stories in this book are 11 of the world’s all-time favourite fairy tales translated from the French by A. E.·Johnson and retold by Charles Perrault. The stories are:

The Sleeping Beauty In The Woods,

Puss In Boots,

Little Tom Thumb,

The Fairies,

Ricky Of The Tuft,

Cinderella,

Little Red Riding Hood,

Blue Beard,

Beauty And The Beast,

The Friendly Frog and;

Princess Rosette.

 

To accompany the stories and bring them to life are 6 full-page colour plates, plus 43 black and white outline illustrations exquisitely drawn by none other than Heath Robinson. You may be thinking “Why Heath Robinson?” Why indeed. Heath Robinson, or to be more correct W. Heath Robinson, is better known for his wonderfully elaborate illustrations of extremely complex machinery designed to achieve the simplest tasks. The images in this book, and in other children’s books he illustrated, amply show that he was capable of so much more than drawing amazingly complex machinery.

Look out for the children’s colouring-in activity book which has used the 43 BnW outline images created to be a companion to this story book.
