This very beautiful and lyrical extended version of the fairy tale 'The Wild Swans' by Hans Christian Andersen is the much anticipated companion toEast of the Sun,West of the Moon.With strong characterization of the heroine and also with more rounded characterisation of the wicked stepmother than in the original version, and with delicate watercolor paintings throughout, this is both a wonderful story and delightful gift. Beautifully presented in a jacketed edition with foiled title.

Jackie Morris lives in Wales with her two children, two dogs and five cats and makes a living by drawing, colouring in and dreaming. She enjoys walking, swimming in the sea and reading, especially children's books. She regularly exhibits her paintings in galleries nationwide.

Editorial Reviews

'What makes this book magical is the delicate, beautiful, emotional illustrations, with elements of the story depicted through pictures of feathers and knitting scattered around the text, as well as page spreads with dramatic colours showing the depths of emotion. ÿIt is a beautiful book in itself - its size and shape attracted me immediately, even before I began to read. A book to treasure.'
