Product Details

Praise

This interactive guidebook to the fairy-tale world teems with background details, maps and pop quizzes. … Tomic’s illustrations have an Old World feel.
—New York Times

Tomic’s artwork borrows from popular representations of fairy-tale characters and locations, while maintaining a sense of grace and novelty in his depictions. Interactive features include flaps (for seeking out hidden animals or discovering the secrets of princesses like Rapunzel and Snow White), mini-booklets, and pop-up wedding celebration.
—Publishers Weekly

Elegant figures in medieval dress give the illustrations for this revue of stock European folk-tale settings and characters (plus some modern hangers-on) a classic air. The lavish detailing begins on the cover with a view of a pumpkin carriage nearly hidden by gnomes and pigs, a wolf in granny clothing, a golden goose and other recognizable figures.
—Kirkus Reviews
