Swan Lake

Author(s): Lisbeth Zwerger (Illustrator); Pyotr il'yich Tchaikovsky

Childrens Classics

With flash, the lake was based in a shimmering light, and before him stood the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. "I am the Swan Queen," she said. "I am the swan that you tried to kill."

A prince's love for a swan queen breaks an evil spell in this fairy tale adaptation of the beloved ballet written by Tchaikovsky

Swan Lake is perhaps the best-loved ballet of all time. Hans Christian Andersen Medal-winner Lisbeth Zwerger brings her singular vision to a glorious picture-book adaptation of the haunting story of an enchanted swan princess. She has based her version on Tchaikovsky's original 1877 ballet, which had a happy ending, unlike the later, better-known, 1893 version. Her illustrations, luminous, lyrical, filled with grace and beauty, evoke the brilliance of the ballet and the universal appeal of this beloved fairy tale.
