By Lucy Wenzke 24 Mar 2011 5

I was so pleased when I opened my copy of this book which I had purchased as a gift for my 5 year old. The stories are beautifully retold in language that is simple enough for children to follow while still being interesting enough for adults to enjoy reading. Each story has about 10 pages of largish font text making them an ideal length to read aloud to children of approximately 4 to 7 years (not too short, not too long). Having said all that, it is the illustrations in this book that make it so special. There are lovely, colourful illustrations on almost every page and several full double-page illustrations throughout the book. In addition, this is a quality hardcover book with dust jacket and nice thick pages.
I have since purchased another copy for my daughter's friend.
