This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. Illustrated by Hervé Blondon. One of the most admired writers ever, Leo Tolstoy brings the same passion and portrayals to his stories that he does to his epic novels. His clever tales have become favorites for generations. This extraordinary volume created especially for young readers brings together many of those works along with stunning color illustrations. In "God Sees the Truth, But Waits" two prisoners struggle with their consciences as they are torn between revenge and forgiveness until fate brings a surprising conclusion. In "How Much Land Does a Man Need", what seems at first to be a steal turns out to be something more than bargained for. Some works take the form of folktales. Others use magic, both good and evil, to point out unhealthy devotion to status and belongings. The book was translated from Russian by translators who knew the author personally. The stories will give readers a new perspective on life, love, and staying true to yourself.
