About the Author:

ARMAND EISEN, the editor of this collection and president of Ariel Books, was educated at Amherst College and is a well-known editor, publisher, writer, and art director of children's hooks. He has a particular interest in classic stories and fairy tales, which led to the creation of this volume.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- A collection of fables, folk tales, and poems, as well as excerpts from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland , Pinocchio , The Wind in the Willows , The Nutcracker , and Peter Pan . Paintings by 16 different artists accompany the selections. Much of the art is highly reminiscent of the romantic works of 19th-century illustrators; some paintings actually have the same palette, arrangement of figures, and characters found in earlier artistic interpretations of these stories. Unlike Edens's The Three Princesses (Bantam, 1991) and The Glorious Mother Goose (Atheneum, 1988), which include early illustrative renderings of these works, this book holds little historical interest. It seems to be designed for home collections rather than for libraries, which will have all of these selections in many other sources. --Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
