Alas for those girls who ve refused the truth: The sweetest tongue has the sharpest tooth. Arranged marriages, trials to win the princess, children lost in the woods, the transformation of humans into beasts, charms and curses, evil stepsisters, tests of love and courage - these are the motifs that touch readers so profoundly as they read these wonderful stories. Along with perennial favorites such as Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast, gathered here are some of the most beloved tales, with an enduring power far beyond childhood. This superb collection of classic French fairy tales, translated by eminent folklore scholar Jack Zipes, captures the magic that makes these stories so special and will enchant modern readers of all ages.

About the Author

Jack David Zipes is an American retired Professor of German at the University of Minnesota, who has published and lectured on the subject of fairy tales, their linguistic roots, and argued that they have a "socialization function". According to Zipes, fairy tales "serve a meaningful social function, not just for compensation but for revelation: the worlds projected by the best of our fairy tales reveal the gaps between truth and falsehood in our immediate society." His arguments are avowedly based on the neo-Marxist critical theory of the Frankfurt School.

Zipes enjoys using droll titles for his works like Dont Bet on the Prince and The Trials and Tribulations of Little Red Ridinghood.

He completed a PhD in comparative literature at Columbia University. Zipes taught at various institutions before heading German language studies at the University of Minnesota. He has retranslation of the complete fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm.
