A delightful collection of fairy stories by Grace C Floyd and others that is charmingly illustrated by black and white plates and line drawings of the cherubic, dimpled toddlers of Attwell. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1850s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. About the Illustrator: Mabel Lucie Attwell was a household name during the 1930s working mostly in watercolour and pen-and-ink. The public was enthusiastic about her delicate early work and her illustrations of chubby, endearing toddlers were enormously popular, lending her much commercial success.
