New Publishing Projects
International Publishing Projects based on the pages of Internet journal "detki -74.ru" are developing. The series of collections under the title "The Kingdom of DeTvorinia" is being successfully published. It fills the bookshelves of kids from different countries. However, not only this series is included in the future plans. And some of our numerous plans are soon going to be realized. Important event in the life of our project has happened. A new illustrated gift-edition of "Mother Goose Tales" both in English and in Russian languages is waiting for young readers. This project is unusual not only because two authors living in different countries performed it in a virtual space, but also because it includes a lot of verse and limericks that haven't yet been translated into Russian. Irene Yavchunovsky, a poet and translator, using her wit and light style, gave them a new life in Russian language and a painter Elena Shmygina affectionately decorated the book with amazing, bright and colorful illustrations.
MORE THAN THREE CENTURIES OLD AND STILL YOUNG!
English short poems, limericks, and songs united under the common title "Mother Goose Tales" had existed for at least three centuries. Nevertheless, the secret of their origin has not been puzzled out. The trace leads to a collection of tales by Charles Perrault published in France in 1697; it had the subtitle Tales of Mother Goose. This name has in turn been traced to Queen Goosefoot, Charles's mother; Bertrada Goosefoot was a patroness of children. Others claim an American origin in Mother Goose's Melodies, published in 1719 in Boston by Thomas Fleet, whose mother-in-law was said to be Elizabeth Vergoose. The plots of many poems are connected with real historical events.
The secret of their everlasting popularity is even more obscure. All the same, the fact is that nowadays children from many countries continue enjoying amusing funny heroes of these charming poems. They became an unusual ABC book for many kids all over the world. Mother Goose tales are still loved by children no matter what country of the world they live, and that's why she is still young.
We are happy to inform both our young readers and their parents that the book will soon appear on sale, and you will be able to purchase it for your kids or as a gift for your relatives and friends.
