About this book

In the Never-Ever Wood | Children's Fiction

Linda Rode , Fiona Moodie

Join us on a journey to the Never-Ever Wood, where an enduring world of stories awaits readers young and old.
Here are sixty stories, selected and retold by fairy-tale lover and compiler of children’s books Linda Rode.
Smaller folks, who have the stories read to them, as well as self-readers, will derive an equal amount of pleasure from this book. It is a comprehensive collection that will open up the wide, wide world of fairy tales and other folklore to children.
A short annotation at the end of each story points out the land of origin and puts the stories from Africa, Europe, the East and other parts of the world in context with one another.

Fiona Moodie’s evocative illustrations are drypoint etches printed by hand and painted afterwards – an intricate process that took more than two years to complete.

The enchanting results make this book an art treasure for every child privileged enough to receive it.

The English translation was expertly done by award winning translator Elsa Silke.

Also available in Afrikaans as In die Nimmer-Immer Bos
