From the cover: “The Illustrated Treasury of Modern Literature for Children is an invaluable, beautifully illustrated introduction to the enormous diversity and richness of modern writing for children. This collection of twenty-six extracts will open up a whole new world of enthralling reading.

The selection includes both fact and fiction. There are stories about animals, about war, about city life and about the countryside. There are stories set in the past and stories set in the future. There is true life adventure and outrageous fantasy. In fact there is something to appeal not only to every child but to all the family.

As well as being a book to treasure and enjoy for its own sake, The Illustrated Treasury of Modern Literature for Children gives details of the authors and other books they have written, and encourages all young readers to explore further the exciting world of literature.”
