The Magic Crystal
Brigitte WeningerISBN: 0698400070;
Book DescriptionPico lives alone in a dark cave, ashamed to show himself because of his ugliness. A greedy old troll is the only one who will speak to him. But then Pico meets some dwarves who give him a magical gift: a crystal that acts as a mirror to his beautiful, gentle heart. The old troll is jealous, and wants a crystal of his own . . . but when his heart is revealed, his ugliness is exposed to all. In the end, the magic of the crystal rewards everyone for who they really are. In this gentle fairy-tale story enhanced by holographic foil throughout, author Brigitte Weninger and Hans Christian Andersen medal-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen bring young readers a picture book with an appearance as beautiful as its message.
