About the Author:

Folk artist Will Moses is the great-grandson of the famous primitive painter Grandma Moses, and has illustrated ten books, including The Night Before Christmas. He and his wife, Sharon, founded the Mt. Nebo Gallery.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—Moses retells five fairy tales with his own style of casual narration and folk art illustrations. The basics of the stories will be familiar to children who have read "Little Red Riding Hood," "Rumpelstiltskin," "Snow White," "Puss in Boots," and "Beauty and the Beast," but Moses adds a bit of originality in the dialogue and in the characters' backgrounds. In Moses's version of the first story, readers learn it was Grandmother who made the red velvet riding coat and that the reason the tricky old wolf went to Grandmother's house was to eat the grandmother, the girl, and the pie and tea that Little Red Riding Hood was carrying in her basket. There are no happy endings for the villains in Moses's retellings. In "Puss in Boots," the ogre who transforms into a mouse is gobbled up by Puss, and in "Little Red Riding Hood," the woodcutter uses scissors to cut open the belly of the wolf. Several spot illustrations appear on the side of each page of the story, which are six to eight pages in length and adorn the end of the stories as double-page overviews of each plot and setting. Moses ends the book with a brilliant summary of why he believes it's important to read fairy tales to children. VERDICT This book conjures up excitement in readers by highlighting aspects of the original fairy tales and by introducing bits of new material in both the text and the illustrations.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

Book Description Viking. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Book Condition: New. Told again and again to young children, generation after generation, fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White, Puss in Boots, and Beauty and the Beast are really our foundational folk tales; it seems fitting that they should be illustrated by Will Moses, great-grandson of Grandma Moses and a celebrated folk artist in his own right. Giving them back their vibrancy as oral tellings in this collection of five tales for all ages, Moses creates a sweeping two-page painting for each story—a narrative tableau incorporating all of the important scenes—then places miniature paintings throughout the text. 40.
