This anthology provides┐in a convenient, readable and economical format┐the most celebrated and enduring children's literary works.

Featured selections include: E. B. White's modern masterpiece, Charlotte's Web; Margery William Bianco's classic fantasy, The Velveteen Rabbit; the Mowgli stories from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Books; and an array of children's verses: John Newbery's Mother Goose's Melody, Heinrich Hoffman's Struwwelpeter, nonsense verse by Edward Lear, and sixteen poems from Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses.
