|About the Book|
This is a collection of Scarry’s Nursery Tales. Eleven familiar and lesser-known tales are included in the reprint of the 1975 edition. Classics like Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs join The Teeny-tiny Woman and The Three Wishes, among others. The stories have been abridged and are suited for bedtime reading. Scarry’s charming signature menagerie and backdrops are bright and inviting. Even the wolves, snaggle-toothed robbers and crocodilian troll are fun and benign. Parents, teachers and librarians will fondly recall these tales from their youth, whether they were read or told by a caregiver. The definitive themes and morals are here to share with a new generation. This picture book is a must for any nursery, home or elementary library.
