Author: A.W. Reed

Description: Set of four staple bound booklets. "Sun, Sea & Star" has creasing to near upper edge of rear cover as well as light creasing near lower rear edge. "Bitterns and Bones" has small tear/chip to upper rear edge. Otherwise, booklets all have a bit of light edge wear to wraps as well as slight curling to fore edge corners and light rubbing to surfaces.

A rare complete four volume set. Each volume is beautifully illustrated by a different artist: Roger Hart, Rob Taylor, Trevor Plaisted; volume 2 by Julia Morison and seven other artists). "Each book contains a variety of stories and full colour illustrations to stimulate interest in folklore. The tales are expressed in simple, vivid language based on the Ready to Read" vocabulary, but because of relatively sophisticated treatment they will appeal to a wide range of ages… They offer opportunities for dramatization, artwork, oral discussion and written work."
