By Belle’s Middle Grade on October 10, 2021
This fairy tale collection features a diverse cast of characters and new twists on the ol' tales. The most traditional aspect of these tales is that they tend to run a bit darker than what most American children grow up reading (and so they are truer to early versions across cultures in that way). I love this aspect, but folks looking for a happy ending and a bunch of expected archetypes won't find that in every tale. This collection may also skew toward a slightly older audience for this reason.
Having taught both Children's Literature and Great Myths and Legends at the college level for many years, I have encountered a higher than average number of fairy tale collections from various cultures and time periods and with disparate focuses. Overall, this is one of the more satisfying anthologies I've read, and I'd like to give special props to "Red Riding Hood," "Bluebeard," and "Peter Pan." These were my favorites (and they are in good company with many other worthy options).
I'll absolutely be recommending this one to students and to any reader interested in a modern take on some classic tales!
