Welcome to Old Children's Books, selling children's literature and picture books online since 1994. We stock more than 10,000 scarce, collectible and out-of-print books, for readers, teachers and collectors.

We have several hundred folk and fairy tales for sale, from a collection begun in my early days of teaching, when teachers had time to create curriculum and children had time to read. To make the collection easier to browse, we have organized the books into shorter lists. Note that older vs. modern books are sorted by illustrator, not author. If you want all the books by a certain author or compiler on one list, for instance Grimm or Andersen, use the Search page.

 Older Fairy Tales Lovely older books from the 20's and before, well illustrated, most published before jackets were an integral part of the book. Classic illustrators, Walter Crane, Kate Greenaway, Randolph Caldecott, Leslie Brooke, Dulac, Frederick Richardson, Pogany, and others will appear from time to time in this section. Occasionally, we'll include a less than collectible but interesting book or a good quality modern reprint, clearly labeled. Many of our foreign books fit in this category, so this list will grow much longer.
 

From Hans Christian Andersen to Angela Carter’s Bloody Chamber, Marina Warner picks her favourite fairytales

C onsolatory fantasies or wise counsel? Materialist lies or emancipatory dreams? Popular trash or the fundamental structure of imaginative literature? Fairytales still provoke vigorous argument. Advocates point to the way they ignite the imagination and spark hopes of liberty. Detractors attack their suspect artistic quality and their damaging social and moral effects. Both take up their positions on ethical grounds, because fairytales continue to dominate family entertainment in books and other media. They matter because young minds and the shaping of values are at stake. Yet what they mean and what effects they have remain open questions.

The most lingering and powerful tales don’t always have an original written text, but shapeshift through time, bobbing about on the streams of story. I’ve tried to choose 10 of the most inspiring, and include some of the great collectors; but as in any exercise of this kind, there are so many that I have had to leave out.
