Fairytales once held an important place in the lives of people of every age and social rank. Handed down from generation to generation like precious heirlooms, these stories told of the struggles between good and evil, rich and poor, and often culminated in an allusion to how we reap what we sow. They served both as social commentary and morality lessons, seasoned with magic spells, mythical creatures, and enchanted objects. However, their enduring appeal is perhaps not only in the fantastical journeys on which they take us, but in the fact that they allow even the lowliest of us to believe there is reason to hope and dream.
This superb collection includes original illustrations and eleven original tales by Michelle Basson, Hazel Butler, Selina Carr, Christina Elaine Collins, A.R. Cook, Sharda Dean, David Tarleton and Honor Thompson.
