Published in 1974 by Purnell Books. Over thirty fairy tales – and not all the usual suspects either, ‘Toads and Diamonds’, anyone? When there was an existing Disney film, they used scenes from that, but when there wasn’t, they just bunged in characters they already had. So we have Grumpy in place of Rumpelstiltskin, and Alice (of Wonderland fame) standing in for the little match girl as well as several other characters. Somehow I can’t imagine Disney going for this approach today!
Oh how I wish I could get my hands on a copy of this book! I was 5 and this was the first “big” book I ever received. Sadly, my mother thought I had outgrown it and gave it to charity. If I had the chance I’d buy it back.
