In this book feature over two dozen stories taken from popular oral tradition and united with John D. Battens black and white drawings, full of movement and energy. Many of the earliest childrens books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children.

John Dickson Batten (1860-1932) was a British painter, illustrator and print maker who was a leading light in the Art Nouveau movement. He illustrated a series of fairy tale books written by Joseph Jacobs as well as English language versions of Arabian Nights and Dantes Inferno.

His illustrations are strongly influenced by the printmakers of Japan and are characterised by an intense romanticism and refined technique.
