Tom Thumb by Eric Carle - OPTIONAL

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.
