Product description


"Hope, joy, and pain intermingle in these dark, alluring stories, which may leave readers thinking of Andersen as a precursor to modern horror." - Publishers Weekly

"A darkly pensive read, perfect for chilly fall evenings." — Kirkus Reviews

"Three timeless stories receive visually beautiful and cogent treatment in this comics collection... Though the simplicity of line and verbal content are both elegant and accessible, the combination of fairly unhappy endings and pleasant yet wooden expressions cultivates an eerie, vaguely unsettling atmosphere. A worthwhile addition to collections of graphic adaptations of classic works." - Booklist

"Wonderful work wonderfully presented and highly recommended!" - Paul Gravett

"Metaphrog have a blisteringly huge amount of talent and it’s been poured into this collection with heart and gusto. Mark our words, just watch this win a ton of awards." - Read It Daddy!

"The Red Shoes has been a classic cautionary tale of desires and responsibilities for generations, and here it is interpreted wonderfully, a mixture of pathos and delight, magical wonder and dark undercurrents." - Forbidden Planet Blog

"Their art has a delicate line that reminds me of Charles Vess, but their faces are unique, almost doll-like, adding to the creepy feel of the stories." - The Jean Little Library

"The Red Shoes And Other Tales is a beautiful book by Metaphrog telling three bittersweet stories that really are suitable for all ages." - Down the Tubes

"A beautiful but haunting fairy tale brought to stunning visual life." - Broken Frontier

About the Author

Metaphrog are John Chalmers and Sandra Marrs. Together they have been creating graphic novels since 1996. Their Louis series has received several Eisner and Ignatz Award nominations and critical acclaim worldwide, while Louis - Night Salad was Highly Commended for the Scottish Children's Book Awards. John is from Scotland, and Sandra grew up in France, before moving to Britain. Their meeting was a catalyst, and within a few months they created Metaphrog. They regularly travel to give talks and workshops on comics and their working methods. They have also produced commissioned graphic novels and illustrations for a variety of clients. Last year, they were named as one of Canongate's Future 40 best contemporary Scottish Storytellers. Follow them on Twitter @metaphrog and visit www.metaphrog.com.
