Read in April, 2012

Updated version of the traditional story by the Brothers Grimm. Much more likable, not as dark at the original, the changes make it possible for teachers of younger children to share this one, if they wish. I liked the lyrical language, the typeface and the overall style of the illustrations -- they all fit the story well. But I agree with other reviewers, the people look a little unnatural.
