Griselda is so beautiful that her suitors literally lose their heads! Not only does she cause anyone who looks at her to lose his head — she collects the lost heads, oblivious to the fact that everyone is terrified of her. When she runs out of willing companions, she finds a prince so myopic that for a short while he is able to be with her (before the inevitable happens). ...more

Een verrassend en licht luguber prentenboek over letterlijk dodelijke schoonheid.
Het even donkere (pun intended!) en originele 'Nocturne: Droomrecepten' van Isol staat al enkele maanden op mijn nachtkastje en sinds dan kijk ik er altijd naar uit het licht uit te doen.
De mooie Griselda biedt voor een prentenboek onverwacht veel materiaal om dieper over na te denken en is geïllustreerd met boeiende, mooie tekeningen. De luchtige horror doet denken aan de originele versies van klassieke sprookjes

Zot, grappig, verrassend sprookje. Iets waar veel mensen niet onmiddellijk naar grijpen, spijtig genoeg. Sinttip!
Isol won de Astrid Lindgren prijs in 2013. Ze bracht eerder een droomkalender voor kinderen uit. Hier alvast een grote fan!

I almost put this under spooky kids because everyone's head pops off at the sight of the beautiful Griselda and she is amused by this and starts collecting, cataloging, and displaying the heads, but the book doesn't make it feel as dark as it sounds.
