About the Author:

Lisbeth Zwerger has been accorded nearly every prize?that can be given, including the highest international award for lifetime achievement, the Hans Christian Andersen Medal.?Since 1981 she has devoted her extraordinary talents to children’s literature, to stories as charming and picturesque as her native Vienna.?Always surprising, always engaging, her artwork combines technical mastery with an insight and gentleness so rare and captivating that she has been correctly called one of the finest illustrators of the twentieth century.

Review:

"Whether she is depicting Little Hobbin in his crib, conversing with the moon, or Kipling’s Djinn creating a hump, Zwerger portrays key moments in imaginative ways. While the intended audience for these stories spans a wide range, libraries needing to replace the originals will find this a worthy purchase."
― Booklist, Kay Weisman

"It’s a fresh breath into timeless text...The physical book is a work of art...This is one to savor, to celebrate, and to remember."-Design of the Picture Book, Carter Higgins
