Description
We've always heard that the classic fairy tales are rather dark and possibly not for children, and this intriguing anthology proves these assertions to be true. "The Little Mermaid" is excerpted from Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué's 1811 Undine, and the charming lady's romance turns out very badly. The 1734 "Jack and the Beanstalk" is scarier yet also more colorful than the more familiar version, but in one variant of "Little Red Riding Hood," the damsel is eaten by a werewolf, end of story. A National Book Critics Circle Award winner for Stranger Magic, Marina Warner assesses the enduring appeal of these nine stories, which also include "Sleeping Beauty," "Snow White," and "Beauty and the Beast."
