This is a fantastic collection of 'fairy' tales from around the world that keep to the origins and original style and detail of the stories giving them a darker, quirkier and more realistic edge than the disney-fied versions we're more familiar with. Angela Carter brings these tales top life through her introduction and associated notes without overbearing or overwhelming the reader with her own views, which allows the reader to form their own views on each tale and the collection as a whole. An utterly superb collection that can be revisited again and again.
