Carle, Eric Tom Thumb (Grimms’ Tales retold and illustrated by Eric Carle). Orchard Books (Scholastic), 1976, 2011. $18. Content: G. PICTURE BOOK.
Eric Carle lends his illustrative and story-telling hands to the classic stories of the Brothers Grimm. For big fans of Carle’s work, this is a good introducation to these particular tales. There are actually four Grimm stories: Tom Thumb, Fisherman and His Wife, Hans in Luck and The Seven Swabians – different stories in this book have been in different Eric Carle editions through the years, but this is the first time in this form.
