I bought this book because of a recommendation by Tony DiTerlizzi, who is himself a pretty great children's book illustrator. No doubt, he and Brian Froud will show up in later editions.
I am happy to say that I recognized all of the names except Kay Nielsen, who is now one of my favorite illustrators. I grew up reading fairy tales -- I thought because of the stories themselves -- now I think because of the delightful and engaging classic illustrations. For example, I had a Walter Crane-illustrated edition of Beauty and the Beast.
I love the stories behind the illustrators and the illustrations, and the artwork contained in this book is alone worth the price of the book.
