Tales for Little People

Total Issues: 692

"In December 1905 the versatile Aldine Publishing Company began issuing Tales for Little People, at first four numbers monthly, later three. This series was obviously inspired by the Books for the Bairns, but was less austere in character. It appealed to mother, older sisters, nurse-maids, was decidedly feminine and gentle in character, and was edited by "Lady Kathleen". The child was here patronised with a certain auntishness. In format it was almost identical with the Books for the Bairns, having to begin with also 64 pages each number. From the outset it had an effective pea-green cover, displaying in red a permanent fairy-land framework (later varied) in which the title of the particular number and one of the illustrations for it were inset. There were ample illustrations within the text. A 'League' was early founded (December 1906) to organise the readers, with a badge of membership, and there were painting competitions, which provided readers with a further chance of seeing their names in print." (Otto Maurer)
