Review: My daughters enjoyed this read Halloween week. Nice dark rewrite of a classic tale. Would definitely read more in the series.

Review: Loved the concept and the writing BUT the book starts with a scene where Cinderella rides her clearly struggling horse (lengthy descriptions of the poor animal wheezing and how she could feel his bones) and how she digs her heels in and forces him to gallop. She is shouting “wahooo” as her horse drops and dies. I was shocked by the obvious animal cruelty of this scene, and do not think it’s a message we should present to young readers as in any way acceptable. I’m sure it’s intended to be “gothic and dark”, but that doesn’t make it right. If this doesn’t bother you, you’ll love the book. In addition there is a typo which is surprising from this publisher. Horses have reins. Queens have reigns.

  • 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.

  • Waterstones The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde

    Price: £10.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Oscar Wilde's fairy tales were, he said, meant partly for children, and partly for those who have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy. The tales include The Happy Prince, The Remarkable Rocket, and The Fisherman and his Soul. In them, Wilde mocks the self-important and self-righteous, and celebrates the virtues of pity and charity. Finely-wrought, and studded with dazzling word-pictures, these are stories to treasure. In this new edition, which contains all of Wilde's fairy tales, his rich prose is evoked beautifully with the sumptuous, intricate work of artist Isabelle Brent. With an insightful introduction by Neil Philip, this is surely the definitive edition of Wilde's classic tales.
