Image for Classic Tales Comics And Books

Welcome to our Classic Tales category, a great resource for students and teachers, with some cool art work you can use in your projects.

Tom Sawyer and Treasure Island appear in Dell's Famous Stories. Dell also include Tom Sawyer in their Junior Treasury, along with Aladdin and Gulliver's Travels. Alice makes an appearance in a few titles, however very few of the stories are faithful to the original character.

DS Publishing set the bar a bit higher with their Stories by Famous Authors Illustrated. Shakespeare hits the comic book market with his Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Hamlet. Another literary masterpiece is Dickens' Nicholas Nickelby. For those of you who prefer classic adventures then there is the Scarlet Pimpenel, She and The 39 Steps.

A great little Spanish book is Los Mil Y Un Cuento. The thousand and one stories of Ameller include fantasy and fairy tales. They normally end happily, often with a wedding, despite the best efforts of witches and stepmothers. The Hindu title Manoj Chitra Katha features some stories that have already been covered in our English titles including: Aladdin, Sindbad and Gulliver. A great comparison!

We have 27 titles and 237 issues in our 'Classic Tales Category' for you to enjoy.
