Beatrix Potter - The Tailor of Gloucester
To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques. The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before. Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.

Hans Christian Andersen - The Complete Illustrated Stories of Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) a dán irodalom legismertebb írója. Meséit több nyelvre lefordították, ezek voltak első "útlevelei szerte a világban". Későbbi életművében három műfaj különül el: a regény, a mesék és más novellisztikus történetek, de élete végéig a meseírás maradt a fő kifejezésformája. Történeteiből számos báb-, rajz-, mozifilm, színpadi előadás, balett és opera is készült. Ez a kötet Andersen összes klasszikus meséjét tartalmazza, csakúgy, mint több, mint 100 másik történetét, beszámolóját Andersen utazásairól, illetve rövid önéletrajzát - összességében 137 történetet. Több, mint 290 eredeti metszet ragadja meg a mesék varázslatos világát.

Jon Klassen - I Want My Hat Back
The bear’s hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear’s memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.

Alan Alexander Milne - Amikor még kicsik voltunk / When We Were Very Young
Milne klasszikus szerző. Talán még életében az volt. Hetven éve a világon mindenütt olvassák, szavalják, énelkik a verseit, színházakban, mozikban játsszák műveit. A Shepard-rajzok pedig legalább annyira népszerűek, mint a Walt Disney- figurák. Az európai nagyvárosok divatja bő pólókra nyomja a versidézetek és micimackós aranymondások mellé a kedves figurákat. Milne összessen négy gyerekkönyvet írt: Micimackó, Micimackó kuckója, Hatévesek lettünk, Amikor még kicsik voltunk. Ezt az utóbbit magyarul most veheti kézbe először az olvasó. A költemények azért olvashatók két nyelven, hogy az angolul tudók és tanulók (akár gyerekek, akár felnőttek) kétszer örüljenek és közben okosodjanak. Milnétől üdítő angolul tanulni!
