Review text

A wonderfully lively collection of traditional nursery stories like 'The Gingerbread Man' and 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff', and modern flights of fancy like 'A Thousand Yards of Sea' by Adele Geras and 'The Horrendous Hullabaloo' by Margaret Mahy. It is a rich source from which to pick bedtime stories, amusingly illustrated and well designed. (4-7 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
