An Illustrated Treasury of Swedish Folk and Fairy Tales, Hardback Book

An Illustrated Treasury of Swedish Folk and Fairy Tales Hardback

Illustrated by John Bauer

Description

A new centenary gift edition of the much-loved collection of folk and fairy tales from Sweden, illustrated by acclaimed artist John Bauer. From good natured Scandinavian trolls through giants, tomtes, shepherd boys and princesses, the twenty-three classic stories by well-known authors such as Elsa Beskow and Anna Wahlenberg are delightfully told, full of adventure and magic with clever, resourceful children outwitting fairytale villains. John Bauer's art -- renowned for its detail, character and subtle humour -- has never looked more luminous and evocative than in this gorgeously produced edition.

Twenty extra pictures have been added along with a wonderful illustrated biography of Bauer, celebrating his work and life one hundred years after his premature death.

The book has a foiled cover and ribbon marker, perfect for gifting. This treasury will be cherished for generations to come and loved by children, parents and grandparents alike.
