The Cornerstone Library


There are fundamental themes in children’s literature that are returned to time and time again – fantastical adventures that reveal bravery, hardships that teach empathy and kindness, downright silliness and fun. Young readers will experience variations on these themes with this set of 10 volumes, the Cornerstone Collection from the Everyman’s Library Children’s Classics Series. The books are written for readers generally 8-12 years of age, but they’re also wonderful for smaller children to grow with.

The series includes timeless works illustrated by noted artists like Arthur Rackham, Aubrey Beardsley, Walter Crane, and Kate Greenaway. They feature both color and black and white illustrations, cloth bindings, acid-free paper, silk book ribbons, and the full unabridged text as originally published. A personalized version of this collection is available here.
