Walter de la Mare's retelling of The Turnip, originally a tale from the Brothers Grimm, is not only an improvement over the original, but a real work of art in its own right. Here are two brothers: One greedy and untrustworthy, the other selfless, compassionate, and poor. Their fates are forever altered by a giant turnip that springs from the good brother's field not long after the appearance of a mysterious, squint-eyed old man. In gorgeous, lush colors, with clever detailing and borders, the illustrator's images fully convey the essence of the authors intention. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
