The Fir Tree
Hans Christian Andersen
This is a beautifully designed little book. This Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale is about a fir tree that doesn't appreciate what he has until it's too late. The illustrations, done by Finnish designer and illustrator Sanna Annukka are wonderful. In fact, for me that was the best part of the book. They were both unique and colorful. Although this is a sad tale, it would make a great gift for a child or adult. I'm so glad I've had a chance to enjoy this simple but meaningful book.
Thanks to blogging for books for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
