The seventy fairy tales, sagas and parables tell how the flowers came to earth and how people turn into flowers. They tell of the longing for summer flowers and of helpful flower spirits of fairies of fate on the flower meadow and of the flower queen who sleeps underground in winter. They also tell of magic flowers that grow in royal gardens and redeem princesses. The short, sensual time of blossoming is just as much a part of these fairy tales as the inner and outer growth of the heroes on their path through life. Selected and illustrated by Djamila Jaenike. 70 fairy tales, sagas and parables. 240 pages bound with ribbon.
