Review: I came across Adrienne Segur's artwork online-there are some truly lovely sites devoted to the illustrators of children's books, past and present-and was so taken with it that I ordered this book.As soon as I took it out of its packaging, my 5-year-old daughter exclaimed,"Those pictures are LOVELY!" And they are.There are pictures in colour-lovely bright tones, nothing gaudy or garish-and pictures done in exquisite dreamlike silvery tones, marvellous for evoking frost, or starlight, or the texture of a deer's skin.Each illustration has a whole page devoted to it.Some of the tales are traditional French ones-Ricky of the Tuft, Cinderella-naturally!-Green Snake, whilst others are Russian or Japanese.At the time this book was translated-I believe in the Forties or Fifties-it was unusual to have tales from different cultures in one volume.It's not at all unusual nowadays, and there are some wonderful collections of tales out there-some for the very young, some for older children and, let's face it, adults-but I don't think they will ever beat this collection for sheer beauty and magic.Both my daughter and I are entranced by it. I will certainly be buying Segur's The Snow Queen when I get the opportunity.

Review: Small writting even for adults to read and terrible story version. Dark and scary details. It turns snow white into almost a horror movie.

  • Waterstones Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion

    Price: £18.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The fairy tale is arguably one of the most important cultural and social influences on children's lives. But until the first publication of Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives - their behavior, values, and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly shows in this classic work, fairy tales have always been a powerful discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within culture. How and why did certain authors try to influence children or social images of children? How were fairy tales shaped by the changes in European society in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries? Zipes examines famous writers of fairy tales such as Charles Perrault, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen and L. Frank Baum and considers the extraordinary impact of Walt Disney on the genre as a fairy tale filmmaker.
