The Candlewick Book of Animal Tales

Younger readers will find the full texts of 19 picture books in The Candlewick Book of Animal Tales, the latest in a series of anthologies from Candlewick. The books inevitably suffer somewhat from being crammed onto a few pages: while all the text is preserved, some illustrations are cut, or appear as a series of small panels on a single page. But the collection's wide selection and striking variety of authors and illustrators compensate for the condensed format; the contributors include Martin Waddell, Barbara Firth and Nicola Bayley.
