Praise for the first edition: "...can inspire that sharp fairytale pleasure at impending danger, as when the witch's voice cackles: 'Nibble, nibble where's the mouse? Who's that nibbling at my house.'" (Marina Warner, The Times); "[It is] a very good thing to rescue fairy tales from their airbrushed, deracinated, Barbie-ised place in modern culture..." (New Statesman); "For this beautiful edition...Maria Tatar has provided new translations and a series of fascinating textual notes." --(London Review of Books)
