An excellent anthology of fairy tales from around the world. I consider it a fine addition to my collection of fairy tale books. I recommend for anyone interested in good fairy tales or who is a fairy tale scholar. ( )

This book contains 21 folk tales from around the world (although with an emphasis on Northern Europe) that feature independent, strong women with roles central to the story. The accompanying illustrations of full-bodied (ala Rubens) women and men are perfectly fitting. Despite not usually being a big fan of folk or fairy tales, I was pleasantly surprised to find these stories all delightfully interesting. I would definitely recommend, for children or adults. ( )
