Ruth Brocklehurst (Author)
When she wasn't riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth spent her childhood reading about detectives and historical figures. She has written and edited countless books for Usborne - some about detectives and historical figures; some about dinosaurs, scientists and astronauts.
Just the right present for young children.
Everyone knows the Grimm's stories, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty. Here, in this superbly illustrated version aimed at younger children, there are also less familiar tales: King Thrushbeard and The Goose Girl. Just the right present for young children.
