Enchanting (pardon the pun)
on 13 July 2012
I love fairy tales as they usually have a moral in them but that aside it is the stories that fascinate me the most. The stories in this Pink Fairy book are from a wide range of countries, from Demark to Japan but basically the premise is the same as in all fairy stories. A King has a beautiful daughter who won't marry so is sent away from home, a Mother and Father who can't make ends meet so send their 3 sons out into the world to make their fortune. The hideous hag and the malignant Dwarf banished by good. These are tenants that run through all fairy tales whether they are English, Swedish, German or indeed from any country in the world.
A lovely little book to perk your spirits up on a rainy afternoon.
