Synopsis

Here is the classic tale of elfin magic, loved by generations of children and made new by an artist of international acclaim. Jim LaMarche's stunningly rendered paintings, reminiscent of his earlier work in The Rainbabies, are the perfect complement to this favorite Grimm fairy tale. Plus, this is a fixed format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version!

LaMarche creates a set of honey-toned illustrations that make the familiar Grimm tale less an odd encounter with the supernatural than a warm-hearted exchange of gifts.

This retelling in unvarnished prose stays true to the Grimm tale; the book's strength comes from LaMarche's (The Rainbabies ) colored-pencil illustrations
