Iron Hans: A Grimms' Fairy Tale

author: Stephen Mitchell
illustrator: Matt Tavares

"Deep in a forsaken wood, a wild man keeps watch over a golden spring."

Iron Hans is nine feet tall and as brown as rust, with hair to his knees. He is cursed, a terror to all, until a young prince finds the courage to befriend him. But when the boy betrays Iron Hansís trust, he must make his way in the world alone, penniless and unknown -- save for a little help from a certain forgiving wild man. Stephen Mitchellís deft retelling and Matt Tavaresís elegant illustrations gracefully render this timeless Grimmsí tale about pride and humility, wealth and poverty, and the importance of doing good, whether servant or prince, wild man or king.

Matt Tavaresís luminous illustrations and Stephen Mitchellís wry text transform this classic Grimmsí fairy tale into a splendid edition to treasure.
