Summary

Fairy tales are written to both entertain and educate, and published in the shadow of the First World War, F. A. Steel’s retellings of forty-one ‘English Fairy Tales’ is a classic collection of such stories which range from the familiar – ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, ‘Little Red Riding-Hood’, and ‘The Three Little Pigs’ – to the perhaps less well-known – ‘The Black Bull of Norroway’, ‘Nix Nought Nothing’, and ‘The Red Ettin’ . Originally published in 1918 it reflects the nationalistic concerns of the period. Steel takes the reader on a journey from Cornwall to Bamborough Castle, via a palace by the sea and high into the sky, where a giant lives. These magical tales are brought to life by one of the best-known illustrators of the time, Arthur Rackham.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautifully bound gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
