A Lisbeth Zwerger fairytale collection is not to be missed, and this more accessible mini version of one of her best-known collections is irresistible.

The stories collected here are classics for a good reason, and Anthea Bell's masterful translations are the height of the art.

The illustrations are full of whimsy and reverie, which readers of all ages will find charming.

Lisbeth Zwerger is one of the world’s preeminent children’s book artists, and one of the most original interpreters of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytales. This handsome collection, abridged from her well-regarded 1991 treasury, includes ten favorite stories, such as “The Princess and the Pea” and “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” as well as lesser-known but equally wonderful stories, all featuring Ms. Zwerger’s distinctively elegant, witty illustrations. This superb anthology is the perfect introduction to both the work of Ms. Zwerger and Hans Christian Andersen.
