Fairy Tale Comics: Classic Tales Told by Extraordinary Cartoonists

From favorites like "Puss in Boots" and "Goldilocks" to obscure gems like "The Boy Who Drew Cats," Fairy Tale Comics has something to offer every reader. Seventeen fairy tales are wonderfully adapted and illustrated in comics format by seventeen different cartoonists, including Raina Telgemeier, Brett Helquist, Cherise Harper, and more.





Well this was just fun! It's the perfect combination of graphic novel and fairytale anthology. In this book, you will find the well-known fairytales, but you'll also find a few you might not know about.

For instance, I had never heard of "The Boy Who Drew Cats" or "The Princes and the Tortoise." The stories are well told; they are simple but do not leave out the major elements. I think the format of this book makes each of these fairytales accessible to all readers. The combination of illustraions is also enjoyable. Some stories are ellaborately illustrated, while other take a more simplistic approach. Either way, it's going to be a hit with any fan of fairytales.
