Lord of the Animals by Fiona French Lord of the Animals, Paperback (September 2008)

Bold retelling of a Native American Miwok myth that gives an intriguing explanation of how human beings began.

Snow White in New York by Fiona French Snow White in New York, Paperback (November 1989)

In this stunningly-illustrated retelling, the well-loved fairy tale is set in 1920s New York. Snow White is a beautiful singer, her wicked stepmother a shady figure from the city's underworld. The dwarves become a seven-piece jazz band, the prince a dashing reporter. With its Jazz Age glamour, this is a unique take on a fairy-tale favourite.

Easter by Fiona French Easter, Hardback

Twelve radiant tableaux by the acclaimed artist reflect the timeless beauty of the Easter story in stained glass. Inspired by the English cathedral windows of Ely, Lincoln, York, and Canterbury, these images are combined with the words from the New Testament to create a classic.
