An enchanting retelling of nineteen fairy tales, introduced by popular fantasy writer Philip Pullman

Originally published in 1927, Told Again is an enchanting collection of elegant fairy tales, showcasing the formidable talents of Walter de la Mare, one of the most celebrated writers of children's literature during the first half of the twentieth century. His abundant literary gifts can be savored once more in this beautiful new edition. Nineteen adapted classics, including "Rapunzel," "Little Red Riding-Hood," "Rumplestiltskin," and "The Sleeping Beauty," are made new by de la Mare's poetic insights and graceful prose, making these tales appropriate for younger readers. With marvelous black and white illustrations by A. H. Watson, this volume also presents a splendid introduction by Philip Pullman, the contemporary master of fantasy literature.
