Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

In the twenty tales told in this book, Charles & Mary Lamb succeeded in paraphrasing the language of truly adult literature in children's terms. Let us not underestimate young readers: they love a complex story with many and varied characters, twists of plot, and turns of fate as much as anyone — but they draw the line at reading in unfamiliar language. The Lambs provide a real feast of plain fare, and flavor it with as many tasty tidbits of Shakespearean language as they felt the young reader could easily digest. This deluxe Children's Classic edition is produced with high-quality, leatherlike binding with gold stamping, full-color covers, colored endpapers with a book nameplate. Some of the other titles in this series include: Anne of Green Gables, Black Beauty, King Arthur and His Knights, Little Women, and Treasure Island.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely small print
By Dennis on August 28, 2020
These pages are extremely hard to read because the font is really small, maybe 8 point, with not much white space on the page. It seems they were trying to fit as much as they could on each page in order to save paper. I haven't begun trying to read it yet, but it is seems it will be an unpleasant experience due to the difficulty keeping concentration on the small print. I may just return it.
