White as Milk, Red as Blood

The Forgotten Fairy Tales of Franz Xaver von Schönwerth

Knopf, Canada

By Franz Xaver von Schönwerth
Illustrated by Willow Dawson
Foreword by Philip Pullman
Translated by Shelley Tanaka

“Ferocious. And funny, and moving, and delightful ... illustrated with wonderful freedom and zestful inventiveness.” PHILIP PULLMAN from the Foreword

Following the tradition of illustrated fairy-tale collections, White as Milk, Red as Blood is the very first fully illustrated, full-colour English edition of Franz Xaver von Schönwerth’s work. It is a timeless tome of enchantment and foreboding: tales–as haunting as they are profound–of powerful princesses, helpless men, lecherous villains, virtuous girls, witches, giants, at least one female serial killer, mer-people, shape-shifters and talking beasts–a kaleidoscope of wonders both familiar and entirely new; rich and strange.
