In our electronic age, children are more likely to dial up a website than curl up with a book. But in DK Classics, expert abridgments and retellings are matched with brilliant illustrations to create books which will capture the attention of today's visually sophisticated children. Rich factual content includes new photography, prints, diagrams, and maps, all expertly employed to provide a rich backdrop to classic tales. Each narrative is the perfect medium in which children can work out a world of moral values through powerful story experiences.
