I love the way Usborne present these books, with a soft padded cover and superb illustrations - they are ideal presents and books to treasure. The old favourites are all here and there are also many less familiar pieces to delight the audience. The illustrations by Christine Pym are superb - they are full of fun and humour and a key part of this lovely book as they are integrated perfectly with the text.
Parents in Touch
A beautifully illustrated and packed edition which would make a lovely gift.
