Best Fairy Stories of the World

Marcus Clapham

About the book

Fairy tales are the simplest and purest expressions of the collective unconscious and so a study of the world's best fairy stories offers a wealth of insights into the human mind, from a multitude of nations and cultures. Folk tales and fairy stories were originally intended for both adults and children - Grimms' Household Tales, for instance - and this international anthology brings together 'The Frog Who Became an Emperor' from China, 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' from Norway and 'Pinocchio' from Italy, as well as the classic stories of Aesop, Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault and Oscar Wilde, among many others.
Accompanying artwork by the masters of children's book illustration, including Arthur Rackham, Charles Robinson, Walter Crane and Howard Pyle, will appeal to readers of all ages.
Designed to appeal to the booklover, Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautifully bound hardback gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
