The Classic Grimm's Tale of Jorinda and Joringel
'This is a beautiful book. I really enjoy Bernadette Watts' illustrations: they are detailed but soft, and the colours express such emotion. [...] A gorgeous book of 'happy ever after'.
'Berandette Watts has once again brough the story to life with her magical illustrations. The story is written in a simple beautiful way, showing how love triumphs over evil.'
'The colorful textured illustrations are a beautiful complement to the classic tale... Readers who enjoy fairy tales will enjoy this lesser known story.'
