Read full description of the books:



Clifton Fadiman can remember to this day the wonder that he felt as a child when he opened a book and found "a surprise package stuffed with things I had no idea ever existed." Fadiman's lifelong love affair with books, which began at the age of four, is evident in this splendid anthology, which gives young children--and adults who can still summon up the child in themselves--a chance to explore the riches of books that will entertain, amuse, sadden, delight, mystify, and astonish.

International in scope, covering countless countries, and handsomely illustrated (often with the original art), the 140 selections in The World Treasury of Children's Literature represent the finest traditional and modern favorites. Book I has Mother Goose rhymes, as well as rhymes from Hungary, Denmark and China; ancient Norse and Greek myths; Aesop's fables; English fairy tales, including The Story of the Three Bears and Whittington and His Cat; and verse by Robert Louis Stevenson, Hilarie Belloc, and Dennis Lee. And there are wonderful stories by:

-Margaret Wise Brown
(Goodnight Moon)
-Jean de Brunhoff
(The Story of Babar the Little Elephant)
-Marie Hall Ets
(Play with Me)
-Robert McCloskey
(Make Way for Ducklings)
-H.A. Rey
(Curious George)
-Ezra Jack Keats
(Hi, Cat)
-Judith Viorst
(Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day)
-Else Holmelund Minarik
(A Kiss for Little Bear)
-Wanda G'ag
(The Funny Thing)
-Tomi Ungerer
(The Three Robbers)
