The Ugly Duckling retold by Rachel Isadora
I've just fallen in love with this series of Rachel Isadora's fairytales! She has been retelling & illustrating a number of classic fairytales from Grimm & Andersen but with illustrations inspired by a decade of her living in Africa. I have to say that The Ugly Duckling is one of my favourites! Besides being absolutely gorgeous, her vibrant collage/mixed media illustrations add a new depth & flavour to these beloved & familiar classics.
