About this deal

Each tale is linked with a specific place or county in England: 'The Dragon Castle' from Northumberland, 'The Girl Snatched By Fairies' from County Durham, 'The Princess and the Fool' from Kent and 'The Dark Moon' from Lincolnshire. This book is a collection of two shorter volumes, and the first one is strongly biased in favor of European and Western Asian cultures. You would expect a collection like this to have a certain amount of filtering or bias, and they definitely do. Fairy tales are based upon oral traditions and convey deeper meaning under the guise of enchanting tales.

If you are easily disgusted or have a somewhat black and white view, this book is perhaps not for you.She got it for Christmas when she was 3, and sat down and listened to the whole thing in one sitting. She has a specialist knowledge of world myths, legends and folk tales and is on a mission to bring these wonderful tales alive for new generations of readers. This beautifully illustrated book is a perfect princess gift for a birthday party, baby shower, or just because!

Together, they form a perfect introduction to the different types of traditional stories and their place in English oral and written heritage. This popular collection for children in year 2 offers surprising, clever and amusing variations of familiar stories. Bien, ocurre como siempre en los libros de relatos: unos gustan mucho, otros un poco menos y alguno nada de nada. I could see the roots of Grimm’s Fairytales and Mother Goose in these stories, and there were several stories based around the Cinderella theme, Rumpelstiltskin and elements of Snow White. The expected, lovely scenes of enchanted castles and princesses in ball gowns are shot through with acidic, almost neon contemporary hues.Some were written in slang and in dialect, which made them a little harder to get through (although this wasn’t a problem). To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Trasmiten lecciones de todo tipo desde mensajes feministas hasta temas familiares y relacionados con la salud mental.
