Review: Fairy Tale Comics and Princess Tales

My review of two amazing books that I received from Macmillan. They were absolutely gorgeous books and definitely worth a peek! And trust me.. the comics are much better than the one pictured above!

Fairy Tale Comics: Classic Tales Told by Extraordinary Cartoonists

Synopsis

From Goodreads:

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.
 
Edited by Nursery Rhyme Comics’ Chris Duffy, this jacketed hardcover is a beautiful gift and an instant classic

My Review

Need a little pick-me-up after a hard day at work? Well then I highly suggest that you pick up Fairy Tale Comics! It is a collection of “classics tales told by extarodinary cartoonists”. The book is edited by Chris Duffy and has 17 different fairy tales, including 12 Dancing Princesses and Baba Yaga. The cartoons are absolutely adorable and so brightly coloured. Just flipping through the pages made me absolutely smile! The cartoonists are extremely talented and will make everyone feel much better after a hard day!

Princess Tales: Once Upon a Time in Rhyme with Seek-and-Find Pictures

Synopsis

From Goodreads:

Once upon a time. . .    

A princess danced, a princess dreamed, another found a pea.
One kissed a frog, one saved a bird, another crossed the sea.
One ate an apple, one tamed a beast, one lost a satin shoe.
And another spun straw into gold, in ten tales told anew!

Ten of the most beloved princess stories are ingeniously retold and splendidly illustrated—with cleverly hidden pictures—by author Grace Maccarone and artist Gail de Marken. From Cinderella to Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Pea to Snow White, these favorite tales will delight readers, happily ever after

My Review

If you want to spoil your little princess, then you definitely have to pick up One Upon a Time in Rhyme with Seek-and-Find Pictures: Princess Tales. This book was adapted by Grace Maccarone and illustrated by Gail De Marcken. The illustrations are gorgeous (and loads of fun to look at while trying to find the hidden objects). The rhymes are superbly written and really make the book. This is so much fun to read and play with- I had so much fun and I am well past the age of 6!
