Told Again; Old Tales Told Again was compiled by Walter de la Mare, and contains illustrations by A. H. Watson. It is a wonderful collection of traditional fairy tales, including favourites such as 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Bluebeard', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Rumpelstiltskin' and 'Snow-White.' Walter de la Mare (1873 - 1956) was an English poet, short story writer and novelist, best remembered for his works for children, and his poem 'The Listeners.' He composed many short-story collections, though folkloric tales were a particular fascination.

This edition of Old Tales Told Again is accompanied by the drawings of Alice Helena Watson (1896 - 1984); a graceful and unique illustrator. Watson largely focused on children's and nursery tales, but also provided illustrations for dust-jackets, magazines, and other one-off pieces. Her sinuous black-and white illustrations further refine and enhance the carefully collated stories of De La Mare - making this a book to delight both young and old alike.

Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children's stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
