Overview

Cinderella's Gold Slipper: The Spiritual Symbolism of Folk amp; Fairy Tales by Samuel D. Fohr

Samuel D. Fohr holds that the tales collected by the Grimm brothers, and others, are not just childish "fairy tales," but are filled with spiritual symbolism, and as such have value for adults as well as children. A delightful but serious examination of cherished stories, this book reveals new meaning in long familiar tales.
