Whimsy and heroism for children and adults

by Elaine H on Oct 6, 2011

Lovely illustrations that suggested to me a Dutch or Danish setting and a Hans Christian Andersen-type situation. Really beautiful as are all the books produced by this illustrator---who also illustrated The Friend, which I loved, and Company's Coming/Company's Going.
