Product Description

Review

'[To illustrate Hansel and Gretel] Daniela Drescher offers a single, colorful painting of the children meeting the witch in front of a gingerbread house that seems to glow from without and within -- a subtle prefiguration, perhaps, of the fiery oven into which Gretel will eventually push her captor. Ms. Drescher's paintings in this traditional and satisfying compilation of 30 Grimm tales put emphasis on the enchanted aspects of the folklore rather than the fear or the gore.' -- The Wall Street Journal '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.' -- Juno Magazine 'This collection from the Edinburgh based Floris Books is exceptional. The publishers' commitment to high quality production values is realized in a robust, large format book with clear text setting. Drescher'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.' -- Books for Keeps '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.' -- Cygnus Review

I bought this for my little boy who has been learning about traditional tales at school. I looked through a lot of books - many of the stories had been re-written, or interpreted by modern authors. I found one which had Rapunzel spending the night with the prince and getting pregnant...!!! I just wanted a collection of the best known fairy tales, which were true to the original stories and also nicely illustrated. This book had it all! There are 30 stories, some better known than others. The illustrations are simply beautiful, they are stunning!! The tales are pretty traditional in theme...Red Riding Hood does get eaten by the wolf, and the huntsman does cut the wolf open to save her and her Grandmother!! So maybe for some it's a little brutal, my six year old did gasp a bit but wasn't distressed at all and I remember just "accepting" the darkness of these traditional tales without being upset when I was little - indeed, one of the objectives of a fairy tale is to allow children to experience fear in a safe environment. I would definitely recommend this book, and at the current price I don't think there is anything else on the market to compare. I love it, and so do my two little boys!

I bought this for my grandchildren, aged 9, 7 and 5. The eldest, my grand-daughter, loves it and says it's a great book, and she can't read the stories fast enough! I had a book of Grimms fairy stories myself as a child but this is a beautiful looking book that all children would love to read, and be enthralled by the stories and the pictures. Definitely recommend it.
