I need to find the title of a fairy tale collection I read as a child…please help!?
It was hardcover (green boards), didnt have a dust jacket at the time I owned it (was already second-hand), had over 200 pages, quarto size maybe, with many coloured illustrations and some purple-toned illustrations.
The stories included ones from Grimm, Andersen, Perrault and others: I remember these for sure: Rapunzel, Thumbelina, The Seven Little Kids, The Goose-Girl, Littel Ida’s Flowers, Jorinda and Joringel, Donkey-Skin, Beauty and the Beast, The Sheperdhess and the Chimney Sweep, Ricky-of-the-Tuft, Rumpelstiltskin, The Flying Trunk, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Aladdin, The Little Nightingale, The Brave Little Tailor, Cinderella, The Magic Tinder Box, The Frog Prince, Snow White and Rose Red, Goldilocks.
I am certain all of these were included as well as several others – it was a very extensive collection, beautifully illustrated (with costumes ranging from centuries ago). If anyone has any idea what it could be, I would really appreciate your response. Thank you!
Try looking at a Grimm fariy tale book, they were known for taking and adapting other’s fairy tales.
