...and I don't read German, I might have to buy this edition of Philip Pullman's Grimm Brothers' Tales purely for the Shaun Tan illustrations.

I have it (did you see my two blog posts on it?) and it is absolutely gorgeous.

I haven't, yet! I'm waaaaaaaaaaaaay behind in my blog reading, and am only up to the 'C's in my Kidlit folder. :P
Anyway, I will skip ahead and read said posts RIGHT NOW! (Missed you at Kidlitcon! Maybe next year?)

So I have to admit I'm having a bit of a "Huh?" reaction to a German edition of English retellings of German folk tales, but I will buy literally anything that has Shaun Tan's name on it (usually five or six times, so I have copies to give away).
That man is a goddamn transcendent genius.

Did you click through? Because there are more pictures at his site!
