Charles Perrault’s story of a sweet-tempered young girl, forced into servitude by her evil stepmother and stepsisters, who finds true love with a handsome prince (with the help of a fairy godmother), has enchanted readers for more than 300 years. In this lavishly illustrated retelling of the classic fairytale, Camille Rose Garcia reimagines Cinderella through her distinctive visual aesthetic. Hers is a Cinderella for the twenty-first century: dark, compelling, vibrant, and enthralling.
Snow White and Rose Red are two fairy tale sisters who love one another very much, and share everything--and everyone--they find in the woods. When they meet a princely bear and an angry dwarf, one thing leads to another and most of them end up happily ever after.
The story of the Sleeping Beauty has enchanted the young and the young-at-heart for centuries, and has served as the inspiration for numerous adaptions, including the animated film Sleeping Beauty, and the forthcoming Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie.
