Hop-o'-My-Thumb - Illustrations

A few odd illustrations now. They're from the end of the 19th century, from a collection of fairy tales titled Mein erstes Märchenbuch. They illustrate a tale, first written in the late 17th century by the French author Charles Perrault. The tale is titled Hop-o'-My-Thumb and is about a small boy who defeats an ogre.



I find both the images slightly disturbing - especially the first one.
