Top Customer Reviews
As for the storytelling, Ursula Jones present the fairy tale very close to how Beaumont wrote it. We have the jealous eldest sisters, the father who becomes poor, him going to the docks hoping to get his money back, and all the other elements inside the original story, except the resolution as to the sisters' punishment for their bad behaviour. Leaving an open-ending that encourages parents and their children to imagine what will happen next. But also a discussion between those that have read the story.
In conclusion, this book is another artistic collection for art lovers and artists, but also families, and fairy tales academics to purchase.
