Cinderella Stories Around the World: 4 Beloved Tales

Cinderella Stories Around the World: 4 Beloved Tales - Cari Meister, Valentina Belloni, Eva Montanari, Polona Kosec What is a Fairy Tale?

Once upon a time, before the age of books, people gathered to tell stories. They told tales of fairies and magic, princes and witches. Ideas of love, jealousy, kindness, and luck filled the stories. Some provided lessons. Others just entertained. Most did both! These fairy tales passed from neighbor to neighbor, village to village, land to land. As the stories spun across the seas and over mountains, details changed to fit each culture. A poisoned slipper became a poisoned ring. A king became a sultan. A wolf became a tiger.

Over time, fairy tales were collected and written down. Around the world today, people of all ages love to read or hear these timeless stories. For many years to come, fair tales will continue to live happily ever after in our imaginations.




These books are a great addition to the library of any collector of fairy tales, anyone who has ever enjoyed remakes of the old classic, and a fantastic introduction for anyone who doesn't know the stories already.
