Oh, beautiful! What a nice find… I love children’s art and want to post a selection from this older book of fairy tales I have that was illustrated by children. I look at some of these and think nobody could have illustrated this tale quite as beautifully…some very minimal and others quite abstract…

I’ve always wanted to travel to the International Museum of Children’s Art in Oslo…
