Myths and Fables

Book Collection

This set is full of timeless tales that continue to help us understand our world, including two collections by Ingri and Edgar d’Aulaire, the Caldecott-winning husband-and-wife duo. D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths, with a preface by Michael Chabon, is a captivating introduction to the legends of Odin, Thor, Loki, and many more. Its weird and wonderful companion volume, D'Aulaires' Book of Trolls, unveils the darker, stranger side of Norse mythology.

Chen Jiang Hong’s gorgeously illustrated The Tiger Prince is a retelling of an ancient Chinese folktale about a baby raised by a tigress with a message of acceptance and compassion. One of the world’s greatest modern fables—and the mischievous source material for the beloved Disney film—Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio features an introduction by Umberto Eco and over thirty-five beautiful full-page watercolors.
