JORINDA AND JORINGEL by Jakob Grimm
Released: June 1, 1978

"At the picture-book level, it's Adams and Shub all the way; this is pleasant to hold in the hand—but, even so, the pictures don't bear close or repeated scrutiny."
The Grimm tale of Jorinda's enchantment and Joringel's devotion, tenderly and dramatically pictured by Adrienne Adams (1968), is strung out into a series of incidents in the vignettes which illustrate this small (4 3/4 x 6 3/4) volume—and which, moreover, give little scope for Margot Tomes' spirited drawing or sense of fun.

"The flavor of the original is held while some of the grimness and overweighted morality is removed."
For fairy tale lovers here is excellent stuff — a collection of the lesser known tales, freely translated and illustrated by bold pictures characteristic of the creator of Millions of Cuts. Read full book review >

"Better for reading aloud than for beginning readers."

CHILDREN'S

"Whether the girl-in-distress-becomes-a-princess storyline is still relevant after nearly 200 years is an entirely separate matter, Disney movie adaptations aside. (iPad storybook app. 2-6)"
Filled with digitally collaged illustrations and pages that take advantage of the iPad's touch and motion features, this app stands out by mostly enhancing, rather than getting in the way of, a good Brothers Grimm story. Read full book review >
