The Illustrated Treasury of Fairy Tales

Rita Marshall, Designed by Creative Company $42.8 (351p) ISBN 978-1-56846-144-1
The Illustrated Treasury of Fairy Tales pairs 10 classics with illustrations by award-winning artists. A chorus of fashionable flappers, rendered by Roberto Innocenti, brings to life Charles Perrault's ""Cinderella""; a group of contemporary boys with differing skin tones star as the sibling suitors for the hand of a princess in Grimm's ""The Queen Bee""; ""Bushy Bride,"" a Norwegian fairy tale about a beautiful girl and her wicked stepsister, comes alive with humorous and startling pastel images on brown textured backgrounds by Seymour Chwast; and John Collier's corpse-like rendering of the old fairy who gives ""The Sleeping Beauty"" her curse may well give youngsters nightmares.
