Hans in Luck

Seven Stories by the Brothers Grimm

Felix Hoffmann– one of Switzerland’s most important children’s book illustrators of the twentieth century— brings wonder and intrigue to these classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales: Rapunzel, The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids, Sleeping Beauty, The Seven Ravens, King Thrushbeard, Tom Thumb, and Hans in Luck.

Hoffmann’s subtle details and keen ability to portray expression in humans and animals alike make this collection a visual treat and one to explore again and again. Seven classic tales are collected with stylish illustrations.

A welcome introduction to an acclaimed Swiss artist whose work will be new to many young readers

...a treasure to enjoy with your children and grandchildren and should become a family heirloom to hand down to each new generation.
New York Journal of Books

The expressive faces and postures of the animals and the human figures eloquently capture emotion from the fearsome figure of the witch in "Rapunzel" to the comical visage of the cow in "Tom Thumb." The illustrations are exquisitely rendered in bright colors and the details are a pleasure to peruse and ponder.
