Jan Pienkowski brings traditional Polish fairy tales to life with vibrant and witty paper-cut illustrations.
Dragons and kings, frogs and spells, witches and mermaids -- all the hallmark characters of traditional Polish fairy tales are found in this magical collection. Jan Pienkowski draws on a distinctive cut-paper technique learned as a child in Poland to produce dramatic and vibrant illustrations for eight time-honored stories. Celebrating honesty, loyalty, and creativity, stories such as "e;The Krakow Dragon"e; and "e;The Warsaw Mermaid"e; will captivate today's child as much as they did young Jan during his childhood. A pronunciation guide assists the reader with Polish place and character names.
