The Essential Collection


Children’s literature can be just as thought-provoking, moving, and influential as works written for adult readers – sometimes even more so. If there’s a canon of children’s literature, the books included in this collection are it, as they beautifully capture the magic of childhood and set the standard for the quality of the books kids deserve. This collection of 10 volumes from the Everyman’s Library Children’s Classics Series will be adored by a young reader in your life.

The Children’s Classics series is comprised of 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 texts as originally published. We offer a personalized version of this product available here.
