The imaginations of children from all over the world have been inhabited by the unforgettable characters of the fairy tales written by the Brothers Grimm, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, the courageous twins Hansel and Gretel, the unfortunate Frog Prince, Cinderella and her hateful step-sisters, and many more. Many children have closed their eyes at the end of the day, lulled to sleep by these stories, which have by now become a part of global literary heritage. In this volume of some of the most famous and best-loved fairy tales, world famous illustrator Manuela Adreani, has created a brand new world with her delicate and brightly-coloured illustrations where children can rediscover their favourite characters through new eyes, while the adults with them can relive some of their warmest childhood memories.
