Eight popular illustrators have brought these splendid stories to life in a colorful array of styles. Additionally, each opera is accompanied by spectacular costume sketches and a brief biography of the composer.

I read 'The Cunning Little Vixen' for the Children's Books group and decided not to read the rest. They just didn't appeal, at least by this author, in this format, to me.
