Publisher's Summary

Magical retellings of three classic fairy tales.

"The Three Billy Goats Gruff": The two younger Billy Goats Gruff want to be as big and fat as their older brother. They long to munch the tasty grass in the meadow - but first they must cross the stream and face the fierce troll under the bridge.

"Beauty and the Beast": Beauty is kind and loving; even though her two sisters tease her and her merchant father is too poor to buy her presents. All she wants is a rose: so when her father sees a beautiful rose bush on the grounds of the Beast's castle, he plucks a flower for her. The Beast is angry, and demands something precious in return....

"The Emperor's New Clothes": The Emperor loves to wear the most fashionable and finest clothes in the land. However, when two strangers suggest that they can weave him a special suit - which is invisible to anyone who's not worthy and wise - it has to be seen to be believed....

Always good children’s stories

Hans Christian Andersen writes good children’s stories. These three were read well. Children young and old should love them.
