Please post all entries under this line. Include your name..and what story you're illustrating. Thank you!

1. [Garden4Gnome] The Little Mermaid.
'i'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue,'
'look out, lad, a mermaid be waitin' for you.'

2. [Cassave] Thumbelina
"You poor little creature," said the field-mouse, who was
really a good old field-mouse, "come into my warm room and
dine with me."

3.[Zab] ''The Ugly Duckling'' *''"Kill me," said the poor bird; and he bent his head down
to the surface of the water, and awaited death.
But what did he see in the clear stream below? His own
image; no longer a dark, gray bird, ugly and disagreeable to
look at, but a graceful and beautiful swan.''*

4. [Thistlewood] "Snow-White and Red-Rose"
Then she cried, Snow-White, Rose-Red, come out, the bear will
do you no harm, he means well. So they both came out, and
by-and-by the lamb and dove came nearer, and were not afraid
of him.

5. [Mitsune] Snow-White and Rose-Red a la Mucha, Just the lineart. I'll see if I can get the coloured version up later tonight.

There was once a poor widow who lived in a lonely cottage. In front of the cottage was a garden wherein stood two rose-trees, one of which bore white and the other red roses. She had two children who were like the two rose-trees, and one was called snow-white, and the other rose-red.

6. [LvSha] "The Nightingale"

Three and thirty times did it sing the same tunes without
being tired; the people would gladly have heard it again, but
the emperor said the living nightingale ought to sing
something. But where was she?

7. [LvSha] "Hanse and Grethel"

"I will eat a bit of the roof, and you Gretel, can eat some
of the window, it will taste sweet."

8. [Gypsi] "Our Lady's Child"

"When he had at last forced his way through, he saw a
wonderfully beautiful maiden sitting under the tree, and she sat there and was entirely covered with her golden hair down to her very feet."

9. [Lothuriel] - "The Red Shoes"
"...had grown fast to her feet. She danced and was obliged to go on dancing over field and meadow, in rain and sunshine, by night and by day—but by night it was most horrible. She danced out into the open churchyard; but the dead there did not dance. They had something better to do than that."

10. [Yncke] - The final scene from "Rumpelstiltskin".
"... and then in rage he pulled at his left leg so hard with both hands that he tore himself in two."
