My youngest came home with an absolute gem from our little school library. Bear in mind, our school is very small with very limited resources, which ends up meaning that we have very old books in the library....I couldn't be happier. The book is volume 3 (Folk & Fairy Tales) from a series called 'The Bookshelf for Boys and Girls' published by The University Society in 1961. The illustrations are so sweet, I am completely taken with them...they just don't make 'em like they used to.
Even the inside cover is cute!
