The Wild Swans
This very beautiful and lyrical extended version of the fairy tale 'The Wild Swans' by Hans Christian Andersen is the much anticipated companion to East of the Sun, West of the Moon. With strong characterization of the heroine and also with more rounded characterisation of the wicked stepmother than in the original version, and with delicate watercolor paintings throughout, this is both a wonderful story and delightful gift. Beautifully presented in a jacketed edition with foiled title.
"This looks exquisite. A lyrical extended version of the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale, and companion volume to Morris' East of the Sun, West of the Moon." Selected for the gifts category in the Children's Special feature. -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller
