This collection contains a large number of well-known fairy tales in their original and magical form, as well as modern tales and new stories. Modern writers include Jane Yolen, Angela Carter and Tanith Lee. Classic writers range from the Brothers Grimm to Dickens, Thackeray and J.R.R. Tolkien.
Most fairy-tale collections are relegated to the nursery, and most of the tales in them are insipid, bowdlerised versions of the original stories. This new mamoth contains a very large number of well-known fairy tales in their original and much more magical form, as well as the best modern tales, many never before published in books, and new stories specially written for this volume.
