Book of the week: fairy tale peepshow books

These are my treasured books from when I was a little girl and I love getting them out and looking at them with my children 30 years later. They are fairy stories from the Chatto & Windus series of Peepshow Books, originally published in the 1970s.

Each book unties and opens out into a merry-go round, tying up again on the opposite side.

These are beautiful and magical 3D story books and I can still remember the excitement of getting them off the bookshelf and very carefully opening them up to peek inside.


I really love sharing little treasures from my childhood with my children.

Did you have any of this series? Or did you keep any favourite books to share with your children?
