Spotlight on Silver Penny Stories from Sterling Publishing
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 9:30 AM Labels: Beauty and the Beast, King Midas, Silver Penny Stories, The Fox and the Grapes, The Lion and the Mouse
We're real suckers for classic fairy tales and in particular pocket-sized versions perfect for packing into a trunkie and taking on holidays with us. We've been enjoying some of Sterling's range of "Silver Penny" stories over the Christmas hols, and we took a look at:
Beauty and the Beast
The Fox and the Grapes
The Lion and the Mouse
Reminiscent of those classic Ladybird books that folk of a certain age will remember fondly, the Sterling Silver Penny range are also lovingly retold and presented with new illustrations - bringing these classic fairy tales to life for a whole new generation.
Short enough to read one or two before bedtime, and long enough to keep your child enthralled, they're fantastic and well worth picking up either as a collection or individual stories to suit your child's tastes.
Charlotte's best bit: Charlotte proclaimed the Silver Penny "Beauty and the Beast" to be "The PROPER version!" - High praise indeed!
Daddy's Favourite bit: A great little pocket sized pocket money range of fairy stories with something for everyone!
