Illustration for "Rosanella" by Henry Justice Ford (1860-1940). 1892. From Lang's The Green Fairy Book, p. 49. The Queen has a terrible dream (or, rather, a nightmare), in which her beautiful little daughter Rosanella is changed into a bouquet of roses and snatched away from her arms by a great bird. To everyone's horror, the child really has disappeared. The princess wlll be restored later after rather a tortuous process, and everything will end happily (of course!).
