Coincidentally, the three books were recommended by the New York Times Book Review that same week she gave the books to us. Read the full article here.
“As John Updike said, they (fairy tales) were the television and pornography of an earlier age…” When Lily and I read Fairy Tale Comics together, we both found some scenes strange and scary funny at the same time. Lots of reference to “give me your daughter” or “give me your first born” story lines.
Read-To-Me Book of Fairy Tales is not your ordinary princessy type book. The words are still gentle but some of the graphics are on the dark side. Stella still loved them. All three books have a version of Rumpelstiltskin.
Thank you Patricia and Stella. Your new friends Sophia, Lily and Stella treasure these books!
