A Handful of Beans: Six Fairy Tales Retold by Jeanne Steig with Illustrations by Wiliam Steigby Jeanne Steig
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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.
