Praise For Treasured Classics

"Beautiful illustrations, which capture the whimsy and absurdity inherent in folk and fairy tales." - School Library Journal

"Hague's retellings tend toward the gentle (the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood is merely chased away), but they get to the emotional core of each tale. All " - Publishers Weekly
