This is the timeless folktale of a young prince who undoes the terrible spell on a castle by accomplishing three impossible tasks with the help of some small creatures he saved from cruelty. The lean narrative moves quickly to its satisfying conclusion and preserves just the essentials to keep a child's attention and interest. Iassen Ghiuselev is a master draughtsman who meticulously executes every nuance of the situation, costumes, and characters. His settings, in the old world beauty of the Renaissance, carry a bearing and weight in sharp contrast to the pastel-pretty designs of other illustrated fairy tales. The rich tapestry colors and lavish attention to detail create an atmospheric mystery and enrich the story with a magic of their own.
