(Knopf Books for Young Readers Sept. 23, 1997)
, Revised edition
In honor of the 30th anniversary of the publication of Frederick, Knopf is pleased to issue an expanded collector's edition of Leo Lionni's timeless tales that celebrate the power of imagination and the human spirit. With the addition of three new titles--Matthew's Dream, An Extraordinary Egg, and Six Crows--this magnificent treasury now contains 16 unabridged stories, including three Caldecott Honor books and Lionni's inimitable full-color artwork gracing every page. Add a striking new cover and a fascinating introduction by the author, and this is a volume no Lionni fan will want to be without.
In a pointer review of the 1985 edition, Kirkus Reviews said, "Lionni's stories are simple and elegant, his pictures are nothing short of stunning. Splashy colors, inventive collages, whimsy, and a sense of wonder are all here in abundance. A splendid collection...not to be missed."
