Legend of Sleepy Hollow & Other Tales (Word Cloud Classics)
The Headless Horseman faces off with Ichabod Crane in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," a ghost story of enduring popularity that takes place at the time of the American Revolution. "Rip Van Winkle," another traditional favorite from the same historic period, tells the tale of man who fell asleep for 20 years and found his small town in the Catskill Mountains much changed by the time he awakened. Both are included along with many other tales in this classic collection by Washington Irving.
From the minute I saw these books, I've been in love with them. These beautifully bound versions of timeless literature feature colorful, heat burnished faux leather covers. The modern design features quotes from each story embossed into the cover and specially designed end papers. The smaller format (about 5.5" x 8") makes them great travel companions - they even fit in my purse! Books are unabridged so they vary in length from 200 to 600 pages. Because of their similar size and durable feel, they look great on a bookshelf and would make a great foundation for your personal library. They would also make a great gift for your eager reader. I've already purchased a few and plan to order many more. - Laura
