Beware — these fairy tales are not for the faint of heart! Maisy creator Lucy Cousins shifts gears to retell her favorites with vivid, rousing illustrations. (Age 3 and up)

Eight classic stories take on new energy as Lucy Cousins ramps up her artwork. In this bold, funny, and unflinching collection, the beloved author-illustrator retains all the emotion and humor of the original fairy tales: the heroes are courageous, the villains are horrible, and the children are tasty. With her sly, simple language and vibrant illustrations, even the scariest fiends become the stuff of shared hilarity and shivery thrills.

Lucy Cousins has managed like Paul Galdone, Arnold Lobel, Ezra Keats Eric Carle, Dr. Seuss Denise Fleming- to create classic, simple painted line drawings that appeal without being cloy. This fairytale collection is sure to be a favorite with parents and kids.
