Artist Rachel Isadora takes a classic fairytale and brings it to life in a new way using African art and imagery. This book is one of about a half-dozen similar books, and they’re all great! It’s great to see fairytales in fresh takes with more diversity—not only of skin color, but of artistic style too. They’re a joy to read and even more of a joy to look at.
