Reviews

"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

"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

"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
