When a weaver dreams of a lush land, she works tirelessly to recreate the place in a beautiful tapestry. But she and her three sons barely have time to admire her handiwork when the tapestry is stolen by jealous fairies. First Leon, the strong eldest son, then Blaine, the intellectual second son, vow to retrieve the tapestry. Yet neither Leon's strength nor Blaine's intelligence is enough to carry them to the tapestry's whereabouts-high atop a shimmering crystal mountain. When his brothers fail to return, Perrin, the youngest son, sets off to recover the tapestry. Perrin's determination and talent help him outwit the fairy thieves-proving that the mightiest hero is often the most unlikely. Ruth Sanderson weaves a magical spell in this retelling of an enchanting tale.

How clever are you? And how sharp-sighted? Are you as clever as Doctor All-Knowing -- keen to change his sad life (and feed his poor daughter, Maggie)? Are you, like Doctor All-Knowing, sharp-eyed enough to search out the thieves who've been stealing a rich man's money from right under his nose? Good! You are just the one to watch Maggie as she cleverly, sharp-sightedly helps her father earn a four-course reward. The Brothers Grimm rarely told so dross a tale as this little-known one, briskly retold here by Doris Orgel and animated to perfection by Alexandra Boiger.

Late one night, a very poor shoemaker cuts his last two pieces of leather and goes to bed, worried about how he will support his family. He wakes to find two exquisitely made shoes in place of the leather. They are so beautiful that a customer pays more than the asking price, and the cobbler is able to buy enough leather for another pair of shoes. The next morning, the cut leather has been turned into shoes again! Who could be giving the shoemaker this gift? Paul Galdone's retelling of this fairy tale is now part of the Folk Tale Classics series. With gold-foil stamping on the cover, this is a beautiful edition of a timeless story!

This lovely new Folk Tale Classics edition celebrates Burton's lively concoction of remarkable spirit and beauty.

Illustrated by the beloved creator of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, The Little House, and Katy and the Big Snow, here is a delightful version of the tale that boys and girls have loved for centuries. The Emperor himself, his court, and his clothes-or lack of them-are ridiculous as only the master storyteller Hans Christian Andersen can make them. Fifty-five years ago, Virginia Lee Burton added to this tale of fun her own irrepressible humor in pictures and design. This brilliant new edition features Burton's original illustrations photographed anew, freshly exhibiting her lively concoction of remarkable spirit and beauty.

'The classic tale of the old couple, with no children of their own, who bake a gingerbread boy to keep them company. Just as the little old woman is about to take him from the oven, he slips away and runs out the door past a cow, a horse, a group of threshers, mowers, etc. All follow in hot pursuit until the gingerbread boy meets up with a wily fox, and `at last and at last he went the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven . . . He was all gone!' A wonderfully frenetic cross-country chase is depicted in Galdone's broadly humorous color wash drawings. Of the eight editions of this well-known story now in print, this hilarious version is the most delectable.' -School Library Journal, starred 'Galdone has already proven many times over that he is perfectly at home with those traditional nursery tales that are still preschoolers' favorites, and his expressive, unassuming style just right for their very young audience. . . . Children will follow along breathlessly . . . right up to that last snip snap snip when the Gingerbread Boy goes `the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven.''-Kirkus Reviews
