Michael Harrison and Christopher Stuart-Clark have edited a large number of classic poetry anthologies for OUP, including the best-selling One Hundred Years of Poetry for children. Michael Harrison lives in Oxford, and Christopher Stuart-Clark lives in Windsor.Review:
"Like all Harrison and Stuart-Clark's fine Oxford anthologies, this global collection of 23 traditional tales is a feast for storytelling and reading aloud. The informal voices, whether laconic, lyrical, or dramatic, draw you in from the very first line... The design of the large volume is open and inviting, with thick paper and handsome color paintings by several artists."--Booklist
