A collection of the best fables from the Grimm brothers, Charles Perrault and Hans Christian Andersen in a maxi format with illustrations in the dream-like style of Francesca Rossi. Frog-princes, wicked witches, wolves on the prowl, puss in boots, fairies and mermaids populate the pages of this volume, accompanying the reader into an enchanted world where everything is possible and dreams can become reality. This is where imagination can roam, the reality of everyday life raises its head and a fairy tale becomes a way to overcome the difficulties of daily life. For centuries, fables have served this purpose: accompanying children as they grow, telling them that the ogre, evil, may exist, but it can be overcome with intelligence or the magic of hope.
