These illustrations are beautiful, thank you for sharing! Do you, by any chance, know what fairy tale the ones that feature the girl in moss outfit are for?

from hans –
the german title is – prinzessin binsenkappe ( princess rush-hood ? )

Hello!
I have recently found a book that I am trying to get information about but I literally cannot find it anywhere!
I don’t know who could help me, but the book is The Ugly Duckling. It was distributed by Crown Publishers and published in 1985 by Derrydale Books. It was printed in Germany (but is written in English) and the copyright is 19&3 by Gruppo Editoriale Fabbri S.P.A., Milan. I commented here because it is illustrated by Severino Baraldi and it is a lovely book!
I would like to know more about it but no one can seem to help me. I know this is a random shot in the dark but I stumbled across this site.
The ISBN # 0-517-490153 does come back to an Ugly Duckling book – but not the illustration I have.
Maybe I’ll never know:)
