This book is divided in two parts: fairy tales (Beauty and the Beast, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty and Bluebeard) and classic stories (Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Beautiful Princess Magalona, Melusine and The Tempest.). The illustrations are the result of many different publications and projects by the author. This is a real work of art that appeals to all ages.
