This is our favorite version of this classic fairytale which has been loved by children for centuries. A Caldecott Honor Book, it is the translation of the Brothers Grimm tale with rich illustrations by Nancy Ekholm Burkert. A New York Ties Book Review once reported: "This book is Burkert's masterpiece...In short, the illustrations are magnificent. Looking at them, you wish they were the first pictures you'd seen in your life."
