This book combines tales from both of these classic sources, twenty-four from Grimm and eighteen from Andersen. The numerous colour illustrations, specially drawn by the late Czech artist Jirí Trnka, have a delicacy that these strange and wonderful tales so richly deserve. the result is a book which will charm readers of every age and win new friends for the world-famous originators of these tales.
