Description - Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann

BEST OF THE YEAR NODS FROM AMAZON.COM AND PUBLISHERS WEEKLY!"Kerascoet render Aurora and her friends in the huge-eyed style of classic children's book illustrations, but cuteness is just another Darwinian survival strategy here. Even on her clover-high scale, as Aurora discovers, romance is decided by social pecking order and murderous deceit." Douglas Wolk, "New York Times"Kerascoet's and Fabien Vehlmann's unsettling and gorgeous anti-fairy tale is a searing condemnation of our vast capacity for evil writ tiny. Join princess Aurora and her friends as they journey to civilization's heart of darkness in a bleak allegory about surviving the human experience. The sweet faces and bright leaves of Kerascoet's delicate watercolors serve to highlight the evil that dwells beneath Vehlmann's story as pettiness, greed, and jealousy take over. "Beautiful Darkness" is a harrowing look behind the routine politeness and meaningless kindness of civilized society."
