Binette Schroeder’s Well of Stories
This beautiful anthology boasts 10 beloved children’s picture books by one of the icons of German illustration—Binette Schroeder.
Including The Frog Prince; Laura; Crocodile, Crocodile; and more! This artist of fantasy and reality, has been working with NordSud and NorthSouth since their inception. A master of her trade, Binette has received numerous awards including the highly regarded German Youth Literature Prize. This indelible collection is being offered in time for her 80th birthday.
As a fairy tale collection, this is similar in style to Hans Christian Andersen. As an artwork collection, it mirrors surreal painters like Leonora Carrington. But as a contemporary catalog Binette Schroeder's Well of Stories stands on its own merits.

There is a lot of Binette Schroeder's personality in Lupinchen and Laura, these idiosyncratic, autonomous strong personalities who want something from the world in a gentle, yet determined way.
