FOLKTALES AND NURSERY RHYMES
(4) K-3 Fairy Tale Adventures series. Adapted by Giada Francia. A touch overlong, especially for younger readers, these retellings stick mostly to the traditional ingredients, with a pinch of something new added here and there. (In Snow White, the evil queen is a crow; in Red Riding Hood, the wolf worries about maintaining his big, bad public image.) Rossi's stylized illustrations curve and flow, with particular attention paid to hair and clothing. There are four other spring 2015 books in this series. Review covers these Fairy Tale Adventures titles: Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White.
