About this title


Captivating images of an entrancing world retell the beloved Grimm Brothers' story about a tailor who must accomplish several impossible tasks in order to inherit the king's throne.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-Artistic elegance in both format and illustrations and a highly readable narrative make this retelling a standout. Wearing a wide belt tooled with the slogan "Seven at one blow," the little tailor allows even the king to assume that his victims were men when, in fact, they were flies. His quick wit and good fortune enable him to cause the death of two giants, to capture an annoying unicorn and a destructive wild boar, and to scare off the king's soldiers in order to save his own life. The fanciful, tapestrylike, watercolor-and-gouache illustrations reflect the eccentricities of the tale. Some of the pictures fill a page; others cover half to all of a double-page spread. All are edged in thin gilt-colored frames. These paintings and the large decorations that form vertical borders on some pages are filled with an assortment of such peculiar creatures as flower people, armored snails, horses with hornet legs and tails, tiny elephants, a griffin, and various mutations of musical instruments. The painstaking detail that invites close scrutiny of each piece of artwork and careful attention to the enjoyable story make this a first-rate selection.
