MORE ABOUT THE BOOK AND AUTHOR
 
 
The Wild Swans
Retold and illustrated by Jackie Morris
 
This very beautiful and lyrical extended version of the fairy tale 'The Wild Swans' by Hans Christian Andersen is the much anticipated companion to East of the Sun, West of the Moon. With strong characterization of the heroine and also with more rounded characterization of the wicked stepmother than in the original version, and with delicate watercolor paintings throughout, this is both a wonderful story and delightful gift.
 
 
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jackie Morris lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with children, dogs and cats. Ever since leaving college, Bath Academy of Art, at least one cat has watched over her while she works. Big cats and small are a passion in her life, and it was while reading and watching her cat Pixie sleeping in winter that the idea for I am Cat came about. Among her many books for Frances Lincoln are The Ice Bear, The Snow Leopard, and Tell me a Dragon.

  7. For some reason, The Wild Swans was always my favorite fairy tale--maybe because I have brothers and like to make clothes. This edition looks beautiful!
