  1. Jana, this book is beautiful. There is something to these true vintage titles that cannot be seen in recent ones. Maybe the writers and illustrators still believed in a bright and wonderful world.

    Nice to meet you.

  2. I apologize, Janna. I misspelled your beautiful name.

  3. Oh my gosh...this book is just drop dead gorgeous! There is always room for another fairy book on our bookshelves and this one looks tremendous, thanks for sharing:)

  4. Wow, I absolutely love those illustrations!
