This is a fabulous read. A big hardback copy with lovely stand out illustrations.

We have eight forgotten fairy tales told in their own unique way.

No stereotypes in this book which is brilliant.

I read this with my niece. She chatted at parts while I read which was great. She pointed and talked about the wonderful illustrations as well.

A great read for young girls and adults.

I enjoyed the fact that the fairy tales were all the women who did the rescuing and the feminist elements, however, I found the stories very similar so did get a bit bored but a nice book to read one or two of.

Various is the correct author for any book with multiple unknown authors, and is acceptable for books with multiple known authors, especially if not all are known or the list is very long (over 50).

If an editor is known, however, Various is not necessary. List the name of the editor as the primary author (with role "editor"). Contributing authors' names follow it.

Note: WorldCat is an excellent
