it was amazing
bookshelves: winter, coffee-table, children, illustration, fairytale

A children's story from Hans Christian Andersen matched with exquisite illustrations from Bagram Ibatoulline equals a bedtime marvel for child and adult alike. The artwork is simply fantastic and it is worth it just to get this book to look at the finely detailed illustrations. The layout is very clean, which makes it easy viewing for every reader.

I collect children's books that have excellent art, but the storytelling is just as good, keeping it simple and short for the youngster. This is a volume for wet and cold and wintry nights, when magic might be swirling outside the windows.
