Book Description Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Once upon a time fairy tales weren t meant just for children, and neither is Angela Carter s Book of Fairy Tales. This stunning collection contains lyrical tales, bloody tales and hilariously funny and ripely bawdy stories from countries all around the world- from the Arctic to Asia - and no dippy princesses or soppy fairies. Instead, we have pretty maids and old crones; crafty women and bad girls; enchantresses and midwives; rascal aunts and odd sisters. This fabulous celebration of strong minds, low cunning, black arts and dirty tricks could only have been collected by the unique and much-missed Angela Carter. Illustrated throughout with original woodcuts. Seller Inventory # AA29781844081738
