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."
