31 Authors Children Love: Rachel Isadora

Many of the books by Rachel Isadora are retellings of old tales.
Our favorite is this re-telling of The Fisherman and His Wife:

Her artwork is amazing and even a child who can’t read might be found just looking at these stories. I love the diversity they bring to fairy tales.

Beauty is so much more than the Disney-fied versions our children are so used to.

Other Fairy Tale Retold by Isadora:

The Princess and the Pea

The Ugly Duckling

Hansel and Gretel

The Twelve Dancing Princesses


And if you have a little ballerina in your home, you might like these:

Lili at the Ballet. This was the first Isadora book on my radar. At the time I didn’t even have a ballerina in my home. But now I do!

Lili on Stage. There are more books in the Lili series.

On Your Toes: A Ballet ABC

A must mention: this edition of The Little Match Girl illustrated by Isadora is gorgeous. We have this in our Christmas book collection. (Warning: the story itself may upset sensitive children.)

Isadora is a prolific author and illustrator so there are many more stories out there to discover!
