The Brothers Grimm are famous throughout the world for their tales and legends, which have been translated, retold, and illustrated by myriad authors and artists. Lisbeth Zwerger is one of the most highly regarded illustrators of children's books and was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1990 to recognize her lifetime contribution to children's literature. She is the author and illustrator of numerous books including "The Little Mermaid" and "The Pied Piper of Hamelin."
"If you've ... looked at the people who are regularly illustrating fairy tale classics, you simply cannot have that conversation without mentioning Ms. Zwerger.... and it's nice to see a good collection of this sort for this year... nobody really tackles Grimm like this anymore." --Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, "School Library Journal" "The art is moving, dramatic, and beautiful enough to have on a wall. This picture book of Brothers Grimm tales is fantastic to share with children and adults alike." --Jenny Williams, geekdad.com "A... companion to Zwerger's "Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales," similarly elegant of design and equally fine for reading alone or aloud." --"Kirkus Reviews"
