‘Van Sandwyk is a latter-day Beatrix Potter’
- Financial Times
Charles van Sandwyk is renowned for his whimsical and magical style, and these charming verses and watercolours will draw children and adults alike into fantastical and nostalgic worlds populated by animals that are ‘musicians and story-tellers, philosophers and poets’. This beautiful new edition is only available from Folio; a unique compendium of delightful stories and poems that have appeared in private collections over the last 25 years. Published in series with the best-selling How to See Fairies, these five endearing animal tales, and songs to the natural world, have been brought together for the very first time. With over 80 illustrations – including many newly drawn for the edition – a gorgeous six-page illustrated foldout of the wise old owl, and an insightful new preface by Mr Rabbit himself, this exquisite book is a must-have for admirers and collectors of van Sandwyk’s work, and will be treasured for generations to come.
