The Bearskinner: A Tale of the Brothers Grimm Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dejected soldier makes a pact with the devil in this haunting, ultimately

hopeful fairy tale, masterfully retold and vividly illustrated.

Man or bear? When a person gives up hope, is he still human? Such is the story of a soldier who has lost everything to war: his childhood home, his family and friends, his youth, and his innocence. Enter that sly opportunist, the devil, who wraps the soldier in the armor of a dead bears skin, fills its pockets with gold, and makes a dangerous and horrible wager. An unforgettable retelling of a classic Grimm tale, THE BEARSKINNER is a story about the struggle between the two sides of our selves, and the heroic strength it takes to claim a victory.
