These Antarica's Tales by Il Daz has a retrò taste which lead us to our childhood, when our creativity was aroused by kings, queens, dragons, and knights. In these old times Harry Potter hadn't already revolutionized the imaginary of youngs' readers and only the most prepared knew Narnia's tales and The Lord's Rings. So it's a pleasure to read again traditional tales with a fabulous taste. Actually at the beginning the book seems a fairy tale's anthology but going on in to the reading, you'll find out that every story is a chapter of a sole novel. In fact all the events and characters are strended.
"Like a russian doll every story in Antarica's Tales analyzes the prevoius stories giving new elements and points of views, up to the disclosure in its entirety" tells the quarter page , and it's true : the story starts with the vain and young queen who minds to everything in order to be more and more beautiful. Then you will be aquainted of Sir Parcival, valiant knight (who hasn't always been so valiant). And how is the compass related? and the speaking fish? How do they have to do with the collector king and the off-key storyteller? I let you to know what's going on in this pleasing story, which is written with irony, also increased hither and thither by black and white pictures. A book oriented towards children and adults,enjoiable to read and to be read to children. ( )

Book description
Tales of Antarica are composed of five stories: The Queen Of The Mirror, Lion's Heart, The Magic Compass, The Legendary Song, The magic fish. These stories are a part of series that are structured like a matryoshka doll. Every tale is the follow up to the previous one; every new tale constantly gives the reader new elements and points of view and slowly becomes a complete story of its own. Following the traditional rules of tale-writing structure, these five stories are connected between each other with its magic and ever so important morale.
