Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Six fairy tales are told anew,And spiced with picturesquite a few.It took a pair of Steigs to do 'em: 'Twas Jeanne who wrote 'em. William drew 'em. Here's Rumpelstiltskin, in a rage; The Frog Prince hops right off the page; Hansel and Gretel thwart the witch; Jack slays the giant (and gets rich); Red Riding Hood and Gram survive; The Beast and Beauty wed, and thrive. That's quite enough. The book's a killer. To say more would be idle filler.

Synopsis:

"Rumplestiltskin", "The Frog Prince", "Hansel and Gretel", "Jack and the Beanstalk", "LIttle Red Riding Hood", and "Beauty and the Beast" are retold in this fairy tale collection. Full color.
