Fairy Tale Comics: Classic Tales Told by Extraordinary Cartoonists

Fairy Tale Comics: Classic Tales Told by Extraordinary Cartoonists - Chris Duffy, Bobby London, Joseph Lambert, Raina Telgemeier, Charise Mericle Harper, Graham Annable, Jillian Tamaki, Karl Kerschl, David Mazzucchelli, Craig Thompson, Emily Carroll, Gilbert Hernández, Vanessa Davis, Gigi D.G., Ramona Fradon, Jamie Hernandez, Luke Pearson A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This collection of fairy tales is wonderful. Each tale comes from a different source; the brothers Grimm and old Russian/Chinese/French tales. It was really cute because each story had a different artistic rendering that fit the tale. I really enjoy graphic novels that have different illustrators for each tale. The different colors and schemes are refreshing; and the length of each story was perfect so one style didn't overwhelm at any one time.
