When I first saw this book at the thrift shop I was immediately drawn to the cover art. I have a soft spot for fairy tales, and the giant on the front is just fantastic. Then the fact that is was a 1971 Folgers coffee premium, oh my! Even better!
When I was little I always got so excited over the free books with purchase. I think my Mom would get some free ones with the purchase of dish ware? Not sure the exact details, I just remember being excited about the free books. This illustration with the birds turning into men actually reminds me of a book I am currently reading called Deathless has anyone read this? I have just started the second part of the book (only a few pages in) and I am not totally sure what is going on in this section, seems almost like a different book but with the same characters. I will have to see where it goes from here.
