Summary
In this volume, the essence of seventy-five fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm is evoked by Shaun Tan's extraordinary sculptures. Nameless princes, wicked stepsisters, greedy kings, honourable peasants and ruthless witches, tales of love, betrayal, adventure and magical transformation: all inspiration for this gallery of sculptural works. Introduced by Grimm Tales author Philip Pullman and leading fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes, The Singing Bones breathes new life into some of the world's most beloved fairy tales
Summary
An illustrated volume of fairy tales inspired by Grimms' classics illuminates their beautiful, monstrous and macabre themes as brought to life by the Oscar-winning creator of Tales From Outer Suburbia
