Description
"Alas for those girls who've refused the truth: The sweetest tongue has the sharpest tooth," says folklore scholar and translator Jack Zipes. Arranged marriages, trials to win a princess, children lost in the woods, the transformation of humans into beasts, charms and curses, evil stepsisters, tests of love and courage—such motifs, touching readers of all ages, are in abundance in this collection of tales from Charles Perrault, Marie-Jeanne l'Héritier, Marie-Catherine d'Aulnoy, and other French sources. This book contains 21 stories from the 1989 treasury Beauties, Beasts and Enchantments, including "Little Red Riding Hood"; "Sleeping Beauty"; "Cinderella"; and "Beauty and the Beast."
