Well-loved books and stories come together in a batch of fall compendiums. The HarperCollins Treasury of Picture Book Classics: A Child's First Collection offers 12 enduring tales (their covers make a stamp-sized border on the cover) in one handsomely designed keepsake edition that preserves the feel of the original volumes. The anthology contains Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon, illus. by Clement Hurd (1947); Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson (1955); William's Doll by Charlotte Zolotow, illus. by William Pne du Bois (1971); and the more recent Pete's a Pizza by William Steig (1998), among others. Editorial commentary, suggestions for sharing the book with children and brief biographies of authors and illustrators are included after each story. Ages 4-8.
