Searching for some weekend reading?
Staff at House of MinaLima talk about their favourite Illustrated Classics


ZAK RECOMMENDS…
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

Zak has always loved the Peter Pan story (and admits he has a soft spot for Tinkerbell). “It makes me feel nostalgic!” His favourite chapter of the book includes the bold and playful ‘Croc O’Clock’ dial!


BETHANEY RECOMMENDS…
The Little Mermaid and Other Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen

Bethaney picks out our edition of The Little Mermaid because ‘there are so many different stories contained in the same book’ . Her favourite is The Nightingale: “I like the message of the story. And it has my favourite bit of artwork from the series – I love the colour scheme!”


TOD RECOMMENDS…
The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Tod’s favourite Illustrated Classic is The Jungle Book. “It’s an adventurous story. But I also love the way it’s been adapted in this edition”. His favourite insert shows a medley of colourful monkeys emerging from the pages.


OETTIE RECOMMENDS…
The Beauty and the Beast by Gabrielle-Suzanne Bardot de Villeneuve

Oettie adores the elegance of The Beauty and the Beast, with its 18th century French setting. “It’s got such a beautiful cover. It was also interesting to discover the original story because it’s quite different from some of the adaptations”. Her favourite illustration features Beauty and the Beast at a long dinner table, laden with dishes – “it’s a key moment in the book!”


KATYA RECOMMENDS…
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Katya is delighted by the interactive elements in this book: “particularly the letters… and the ‘Dress up Mary’ cut out: I used to love dress up dolls when I was younger!”
