Treasury of Fairy Tales
Retold from original tales by Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, and brought to life in Biro’s colourful, all-action illustrations, here are seven favourite stories: ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘The Ugly Duckling’, ‘Puss in Boots’, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’, ‘The Magic Porridge Pot’, ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ and ‘Cinderella’.
Grimm's Fairy Tales
Val Biro has chosen eight tales from the Brothers Grimm’s famous collection, including some of the best-known – ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’, ‘The Magic Porridge Pot’ and ‘Hansel and Gretel’ – and the book ends with a note about the Grimms and the history of their Nursery and Household Tales.
The Bible for Children
Arranged by stories, from the creation to Daniel in the lion’s den, and from the birth of John the Baptist to St Paul’s last letter to Timothy, this is an engaging retelling of the Old and New Testaments, suitable for reading aloud as well as accessible for young readers. The book includes chapter and verse references and numerous ‘Did you know?’ boxes, providing facts about Biblical times and traditions.
Tales from the Arabian Nights
Val Biro seems to be revelling in the daring adventures, bandits, genii and caves full of treasure as he retells and illustrates seven of Scheherazade's stories from the Arabian Nights: The Voyages of Sinbad, Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp, The Enchanted House, Awake or Asleep?, True or False?, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and The Pot of Gold.
