Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed illustrator Michael Hague brings his hallmark artistry to 15 classic stories that have delighted children for generations. From Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty to The Gingerbread Man and The Three Billy Goats Gruff, each story is lush with detail and loaded with magic. A wealth of fable and fantasy, truly to be treasured.

Review:

"Hague lends dynamic artwork to his traditional versions of 14 stories including 'Sleeping Beauty' and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears,' bringing readers right into the drama. Highly expressive animals and humans often appear in motion, mouths open as though in mid-speech or howl. Forest branches curl menacingly toward Little Red Riding Hood, while Cinderella's stepsisters' facial expressions are lit up with cruelty. Hague's retellings tend toward the gentle (the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood is merely chased away), but they get to the emotional core of each tale. All ages."
