Silke Leffler – the Frog Prince

Recently I bought the children’s  book ‘The Frog Prince’ by the Swedish highly acclaimed writer Ulf Stark with the gorgeous illustrations of the German talented artist Silke Leffler. And I am absolutely enchanted and highly recommend this gem.

The tale is that kind of story I like. Funny and humorous, but at the end it teaches the children valuable life lessons.

The illustrations however, were the magnet that captured my attention. The work of Silke Leffler is amazing. I have scanned only the odd pages, but there are a lot of other illustrations on the even ones.

The author and the illustrator have collaborated for one another book from the same series, called ‘The Prince and the Happiness’, and no doubt it will be soon in my collection too.
