Summary :

Filled with the magic and wonder of childhood, and executed with the style and wit that distinguish timeless fairy tales, the stories in this luminous volume represent the best of today's children's literature. Like their classic forerunners, these tales touch our emotions while shaping our understanding of the world. Unlike their predecessors, however, they present a modern vision of that world - in which princesses rebel against the tyranny of their parents and knights conscientiously object to slaying dragons.
