Description of this Electronic Book

A cobbler girl tricks the Wawel Dragon, after all the king's knights fail... The Polar Bear King loses his skin... Momotaro, born from a peach, defies the ogres everyone else is too scared to face... Snow White and Rose Red make friends with a bear... From Poland to Iceland, Japan to Germany, these ten fairytales from across the globe re-told as comics will have you enthralled. Giants! Trolls! Witches! Beasts! You will encounter them all in this visual cornucopia of a book. 'Magnificent storytelling...I can't remember when I have read classic fairytales that have been presented with more life, charm, and heart than in this wonderful book.' TED NAIFEH, Eisner-Award-nominated creator of the Courtney Crumrin series 'Giants, Trolls, Witches, Beasts is not only a collection of terrific tales from around the world; it is also a feast for the eyes.' CAROLE WILKINSON, bestselling author of the Dragonkeeper series

Author's Bio

Craig Phillips is a freelance illustrator, who works for publishers all around the world from his New Zealand studio. His first picture book was Megumi and the Bear (written by Irma Gold), inspired by travels to the snowy wonderland of Northern Japan. He has also created rock art posters for bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, DJ Shadow and the Foo Fighters. Craig has always had a great love for mythology and magic, and Giants, Trolls, Witches, Beasts is the book he has always wanted to make. On the rare occasions that he is not drawing, you might find him swimming in Lake Taupo or snowboarding down the majestic mountains of New Zealand.
