Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bulgarian artist Iassen Ghiuselev does a haunting rendering of the Brothers Grimm's The Queen Bee, trans. by Elizabeth James, the classic tale of three brothers who seek adventure and the kind youngest brother who wins the hand of a princess. Ghiuselev's stone figures (those who failed in completing the tasks necessary to marry the king's daughter) are nearly as animated as the live characters. The youngest brother's kindness seems to emanate from the page, and draw to him nature's creatures, who help him fulfill his tasks. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Nowadays it's hard to find a person who hasn't heard about Cinderella, Rapunzel or Snow White! Those characters are loved by children all over the world, and those who haven't read the fairy-tales about them, are surely aknowledged with them due to the numerous film and cartoon adaptations. The world depicted by the Brother's Grimms is full of magic, adventures and fun!
