Content: Faux-naive, vibrantly colored paintings dominate this attractive international collection of 32 nursery rhymes.

Beautiful, soft color illustrations with "Old World" charm by Gennady Spirin. Tiny edge wear. Content: Every detail of this intricately illustrated volume seems to extol the triumph of beauty and purity, as symbolized by the lovely, fragile rose.

A Girl's Head
In contrast the woeful bear embodies a feral shagginess, evoking the ursine images from Spirin's Once There Was a Tree. As with this artist's previous fairy tale interpretations, the superbly executed paintings enhance the story's grandeur; at times, however, the effect is somewhat diminished by the characters' frozen, china-doll expressions.
This enduring tale distinguishes between the personalities of the two girls but, happily, makes no judgments. The book's handsome design adds to its Old World allure: text and art are set forth in ruled, arch-shaped borders, while Spirin's colorations suggest medieval tapestries. The text, based on an 18th-century translation of the Grimms' original, is adequate although unremarkable. All the elements of the tale are here, and the language is formal enough to match the mood of the illustrations without being stilted.

They offer dizzying views of the castle's turrets and its seemingly bottomless ravine, an unforgettable panorama of the single-minded army of broom-servants which Franz--hair standing on end--has unwittingly created, and many strange and wondrous details. And Franz himself is portrayed engagingly, his irrepressible--and winning--inquisitiveness evident on almost every page.
Beautiful detailed color illustrations by Christopher Bing. What appears to be a "flaw" on the DJ bottom panel is actually a part of the original cover. Odd, eh?

Kids: Summer 12222
A very cute story. Translated from the Danish by Anthea Bell. Wonderful soft color illustrations by Lisbeth Zwerger. Small "nic" back cover fore edge. Light tanning to white cover edges but none to interior pages. Content: The Swineherd is not as well-known as some of Andersen's other works, but it is a good one regardless. Like The Nightingale, the message is overwhelmingly of the superiority of the real in all things instead of the false. The story is more than slightly dated by our standards, and there is no happy ending. The frivolous princess whose disdain for real things is never explained is banished by her father for kissing a swineherd, a detail that some children may have trouble understanding today.
However, if you're building a library of fairy tales, you can hardly afford to miss this one, and this edition is well-made - love the awesome and fanciful clothes, btw. You look at the girls and you can see them wearing clouds and canyons on their dresses! Beautiful color illustrations by Sophie Herxheimer.

So this funny, wolf-friendly revision of the creepy old classic really tickles me! It begins with Mama Wolf sending her doting pups off into the wide world with the warning: "Beware of the Big Bad Pig!
The three fluffy, friendly, refined little wolves are never named, but I like to call them Frasier, Niles, and Daphne. The pig, a burly bully of a construction-worker, could be named Brutus. Safe in the yard of their new brick home, the little wolves play a spirited game of squash. Suddenly the swaggering swine shows up! In a reversal of the original tale, the Big Bad Pig pounds on the wolves' door and demands to come in, while they quaver, "Not by the hair on our chinny-chin-chins!
As the three little wolves build progressively massive fortresses, the big bad pig employs heavy ground-breaking and demolitions equipment to smash them to rubble. At last, the little wolves have no materials left with which to build, except -- ah, but I'm not going to give away the surprise! Let's just say, the ending is a lot sweeter than the original.
No one gets boiled alive or devoured, and the the classic adversaries even become friends. Kids and parents will love the beautiful artwork and the silliness of the story, although the ending might seem just a bit too saccharine after all the destruction and mayhem. Ages 4 - 8. Adapted by Tom Roberts. Wonderful, soft, dream-like color illustrations by David Johnson.
