- Full Description
A cobbler girl tricks the Wawel Dragon, after all the king's knights fail. The Polar Bear King loses his skin. Momotaro, born from a peach, defies the ogres everyone else is too scared to face. Snow White and Rose Red make friends with a bear. From Poland to Iceland, Japan to Germany, these ten fairytales from across the globe are re-told as comics. And the artist has a whimsical, almost animation-like style that reminds us of the great Jeff Smith (Bone). Giants! Trolls! Witches! Beasts! You will encounter them all in this visual cornucopia of a book. Perfect all-ages book and an ideal Christmas gift.
Introduction by Carole Wilkinson, bestselling author of the Dragonkeeper series.
"Magnificent storytelling...I can't remember when I have read classic fairytales that have been presented with more life, charm, and heart." -Ted Naifeh, Eisner Award nominee
