"It is difficult to imagine what childhood would be like without the special enchantment of the fairy tale. Giants and dwarves, monsters and magic fish,wise fools and wicked queens -- these are the companions that have thrille d children of all lands and all times. In this lavishly illustrated collection, Eric Carle has captured the homely wisdom, fantasy, and humor of seventales from Grimm. Included are 'Hans in Luck', the gently humorous story o f a simple-minded lad who is swindled out of his worldly possessions, and 'The Three Golden Hairs', a classic fairy tale with a new twist. Youngsters will delight in the adventures of the tiny hero in 'Tom Thumb' and of the enterprising sailor in 'Seven with One Blow'. They will be spooked by the ghostly trials of 'The Youth Who Wanted to Shiver', laugh at the foolish warriors in 'The Seven Swabians', and follow the rise and fall in fortunes of 'The Fisherman and His Wife'." - from the dustjacket.A couple of small foxed spots, else very good in unclipped dustjacket. 65.00
