Three sisters inherit a pot and a spoon. On stirring the pot with the spoon, three enchanted objects appear. The youngest sister thinks of using hers to help her meet the Prince of Castledom. Besides being handsome, he also turns out to be conceited, vain and mean, and through tricks and cheating he manages to humiliate the youngest sister and get his hands on the three sisters’ inheritance. In the face of adversity, the youngest sister relies on her ingenuity to teach the Prince a lesson he will never forget. What a Snout!, tells the story of the amusing adventures of three sisters, who, thanks to the enchanted objects their father left them, set out to teach the idle and dishonest Prince a lesson. The youngest sister, in spite of her initial innocence, supported by the solidarity of her elder sisters, shows a shrewed and nonconformist character. The evolution of the events places the action in theatrically suggestive scenes where the Prince ends up being the victim of the young girl’s cleverness. This version, collected in Quebec, and of a remote European origin is combined with other German versions to achieve a synthetic and effective rythm marking the suspense at the main moments of the work. The illustrator´s intention is to take three dimensional figures turning them into two dimensional figures using collage. Iván Prieto offers us his own interpretation of the story, a second reading, enriched with a wide range of hues. In What a Snout!, the artist from Ourense takes his first steps into the illustrative world after more than eight years submerged in the creative world of painting and sculpture.
