Description

Travel the world with 50 best-loved tales, featuring creatures big and small. This beautifully-illustrated collection of classic stories brings together favourite animal-themed fables, myths and legends including The Three Little Pigs, The Ugly Duckling, Why the Swallow's Tail is Forked and the story of Ananse and the Python.

Lively retellings from Angela McAllister are brought to life with sumptuous illustrations from Romanian-born artist, Aitch, in this treasury to treasure. 

The author

Angela McAllister took a degree in Humanities at Middlesex College before becoming a children's book author. To date, she has written more than 80 books for children, including Lincoln Children's bestselling titles A Year Full of Stories and A World Full of Animal Stories.

Nomadic illustrator AITCH originally hails from Romania but prefers not to put down roots in any one place; new scenery inspires and invigorates her tactile, folky illustrations and a constant string of exhibitions in cities across the continent pushes her technique further. Her dreamy characters hide amongst William Morris-esque gardens and bring to mind a bright and bold reincarnation of Victorian melancholy while still retaining a strong sense of her Romanian heritage.
