William Tell and His Son by Bettina Hurlimann, illustrated by Paul Nussbaumer. Translated and adapted by Elizabeth D. Crawford.

Published by Harcourt, Brace & World in 1967.

Originally published in Switzerland.


Mostly color illustrations, though some are in black and white.


Through the eyes of nine-year-old Walter, son of the great Swiss patriot William Tell, the stirring events of more than six hundred years ago--in which tyranny and oppression were overcome--are here portrayed. Tell's sturdy independence, his love for his homeland and his fellow countrymen, as well as for his family, his deep sense of justice, and his hatred of dictatorship shine forth in this simple text. To illustrate it, Paul Nussbaumer--the talented Swiss artist whose first book, Away in a Manger, won high praise from both children and adults--has made vivid full-color paintings and numerous line drawings.

This is a vigorous and handsome book that reflects William Tell's courage and steadfastness. His bravery and self-sacrifice, so forcefully portrayed, will catch the imagination of children everywhere.


36 pages / 12 x 8.9 x .3 inches / 31 x 22.5 x .95 centimeters
