An Illustrated Treasury of Grimm's Fairy Tales Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretel and Many More Classic Stories by Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm GrimmTwo hundred years ago, the Brothers Grimm published their famous collection of folk tales, including these thirty much-loved stories of helpful elves; giants who can see into the next land; foolish but good-hearted lads; princesses with golden hair; faithful servants and wicked queens. This sumptuously illustrated collection of essential Grimm classics includes stories every childhood needs: 'The Princess and the Frog', 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Cinderella', 'Rumpelstiltskin' and dozens more. Each tale is brought to life with radiant, faithful pictures from Daniela Drescher, one of Germany's best-loved illustrators, which are sure to fire any child's imagination.
'This is a large, elegant, hardback book full of favourite fairy tales such as Rumpelstiltskin, Cinderella, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as well as lesser-known tales such as Mother Holle. Daniela Drescher's beautiful watercolour illustrations are both ethereal and detailed. This would make a wonderful gift to be treasured by all generations.'
'This collection from the Edinburgh based Floris Books is exceptional. The publishers'
's delicate but vivid illustrations consist of full and half page paintings for each of the 30 selected stories, punctuated by pencil sketches and silhouette motifs. The paintings are in the magical romantic tradition, depicting vulnerable women and children, for the most part, confronting natural and supernatural terrors ... This is an invaluable collection, which re-imbues these seminal narratives with much of their thought-provoking and talk-provoking vividness.'
'Children's Book of the Month: ...the stories are exquisitely and evocatively illustrated, adding a new, luminous dimension to their enchantment. A book to treasure forever.'
