The National Review Wonder Book of Fairy Tales

The National Review Wonder Book of Fairy Tales is an near-exact reproduction of a beautiful—exquisite!—1917 volume of  famous tales that entertained and instructed generations of children, before and since. We thought this classic book to be such a treasure, such a delight, in content and visually, that we decided to republish it, to afford today’s children the same joy as that experienced by young Americans nearly a century ago. Originally published for the Frederick A. Stokes Company, which was renowned for its high-quality children’s literature, The National Review Wonder Book of Fairy Tales was edited by the late Elisabeth Vernon Quinn, and includes over 125 lavish four-color and “wood-cut” illustrations by the talented art team of Florence Choate and Elizabeth Curtis, all of them adorning dozens of classic tales, including

Hansel and Gretel • Little Red Riding-Hood • The Traveling Musicians • The Three Bears • Little Snow-White • The Sleeping Beauty • Aladdin, or The Wonderful Lamp • The Ugly Duckling • Cinderella • Big Claus and Little Claus • Puss-In-Boots • Rapunzel • Jack and The Beanstalk • The Tinder-Box • Beauty and The Beast • Hop O’ My Thumb • The Valiant Little Tailor • The Wild Swans  • Rose-Red and Rose-White • “What The Goodman Does Is Sure To Be Right!” • The Enchanted Stag • The Goose Girl • Ali Baba and The Forty Thieves • Rumpelstiltskin  • The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats • Dick Whittington  •The Princess on The Pea • The Babes in The Wood • Tom Thumb • The Elves and the Shoemaker • The Tale of Peter Rabbit • Bluebeard • The Frog Prince • Jack the Giant-Killer • The White Cat •  Goody Two Shoes • Old English • Diamonds and Toads • and many more
