A centenary gift edition of the bestselling Swedish folk tales anthology by John Bauer, whose artwork inspired Jim Henson, Frank Oz and Neil Gaiman. This is a great gift for lovers of John Bauer’s work, folk and fairy tales, or Swedish culture.

“This lovely Centenary Edition of Swedish Folk and Fairy Tales is a wonderful tribute to the visionary artist. After an introduction on the life of John Bauer, the tales are divided into three sections "Trolls and Tomtes," "Brave Girls and Boys," and "Kings and Queens." The artist's muted tones and attention to detail perfectly complement the traditional tales and bring them to life. The artwork has been beautifully reproduced and the edition is complete with a ribbon bookmark.

This is a collection that will enthrall readers with tales of magic, clever children and royalty. This collection will be enjoyed by readers who love folk and fairytales from around the world. Hand it to readers looking to move beyond the traditional tales by Grimm, Perrault and Andersen.”
