This long unavailable collection of Classic Fairy Tales has been updated for a modern readership and the stories are accompanied by the stunning illustrations of Irish artist Harry Clarke. Although now best known for his stained glass work, Harry Clarke (1889-1931) first found fame as a book illustrator.

His illustrations first appeared in print in 1916 and his talent was quickly acknowledged as he became recognised as one of the key illustrators during the golden age of gift-book illustration. The fairy tales were collected by 17th century French writer Charles Perrault and include such famous tales as Mother Goose, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and Puss in Boots. These beloved tales have been set alongside Clarke's beautiful illustrations to create a wonderful gift book for children young and old.
