Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This exquisitely illustrated, large format gift book features ten of the most enduring fairy tales of all time. The stories, chosen and edited by the artist, are a balance of 'princess' classics and frolicking adventure tales.

Artist Scott Gustafson spent more than four years creating the seventy-five rich oil paintings, reproduced here in full color. His style is reminiscent of N.C. Wyeth and Wyeth;s gifted student Jessie Wilcox Smith (plus a touch of Arthur Rackham in the fairies). The rounded-face, glowing children and charming interiors contribute to Gustafson?s unique and contemporary style, which will capture the hearts of even the most hard-boiled media-savvy child.

About the Author

Scott Gustafson's first artistic inspirations were Disney and Warner Brothers cartoons. He pursued animation at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and Columbia College, but the discovery of book illustrations by N. C. Wyeth, Arthur Rackham, and Norman Rockwell galvanized him. His previous books include The Night Before Christmas, The Nutcracker, and Peter Pan. With Greenwich Workshop Press, he has created two original titles, Alphabet Soup and Animal Orchestra, as well as Classic Fairy Tales and Classic Bedtime Stories.

We never really grow old, do we? Some of my favorite books are those really meant for children, but hopefully that just means I was born young. Or then again, it might have something to do with the fantastic artistry for which a child's book is highlighted. With this book, the reader doesn't just get the basic fairy tale collection, the real gift is in the art by Scott Gustafson. These are N.C. Wyeth-like, as though drawn back in the heyday of American illustration.

There are standouts throughout the book, but for me it's GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS, mainly for the picture drawn of the bears finding the young girl in junior's bed. The stern face of Papa Bear in his Victorian clothing, hands-on-hips, is one I will always treasure. He looks like a gentler version of Bill Sykes. Anyone who can bring a fabled animal to such life deserves five stars.
