    Signed Copy

    A Children's Literary Treasury

    Limited copies signed by Anna James are available whilst stock lasts.

    Great stories ignite a child’s imagination and can fill a childhood with unforgettable characters, wondrous places and superb illustrations. They also allow young readers to explore, and to understand, their different feelings and experiences.

    In her second compilation for the British Library, children’s author and commentator Anna James (author of Pages & Co) delves deep into the collections to present stories for comfort, inspiration and adventure as well as touching tales to make you laugh or sometimes cry. We will meet mischievous characters from across the globe, sampling classic stories from the likes of E. Nesbit, C. S. Lewis and Louisa May Alcott, as well as more recent favourites from some best-loved and prizewinning authors such as Michael Bond, Kiran Millwood Hargrave, and Sita Brahmachari. Superbly illustrated throughout with both beloved illustrations and new archive finds, this spectacular volume belongs on every family bookshelf.
