I posted the Snow White and Rose Red illustrations yesterday but have updated the entry with extra pictures. For today, since I have already featured a new Twelve Dancing Princesses picture book by Brigette Barrager, I thought I would feature the same fairy tale by Clark, too.
Isn't it fun to see all of the various interpretations of the tale by illustrators?
And all of this reminds me that I never even devoted a week to the tale when I released Twelve Dancing Princesses Tales From Around the World last year. Should I do that? It's a much shorter collection than Bluebeard, but it's interesting all the same.
The McElderry Book of Grimms' Fairy Tales by Saviour Pirotta (Adapter), Emma Chichester Clark (Illustrator) is not a new book, but I recently discovered many of the illustrations from it in an online exhibition.
Here's the illustrations:

EVERY PRINCESS GOT INTO A BOAT
'PUT THIS ON YOUR SHOULDERS,' SHE WHISPERED, 'AND IT WILL MAKE YOU INVISIBLE'
