JUVENILE FICTION / Fairy Tales & Folklore / General

Award-winning author and illustrator Scott Gustafson turns his attention to classic fables and other family favorites in this beautifully illustrated, large-format gift book.

“An eye-catching collection of eight short stories which [Gustafson] retells in lyrical, accessible language. Lush paintings appear throughout, and Gustafson subtly tailors his images to the mood of each story. . . . Readers will be entranced by the striking attention to detail in the artwork accompanying these stories of love, cleverness, and just deserts. Ages 5–8.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Sumptuous visual finery. . . . Agreeable fare for sharing on a lap.”
Kirkus Reviews
