Explore the timeless appeal of myths, legends and fairytales with Margaret James

The stories of The Sleeping Beauty, The Snow Queen, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Thumbelina, Rapunzel: what do they have in common, apart from – as my grandson once pointed out – the fact that every single one of them is about a girl?

They’re all traditional tales that have been told and retold for centuries by writers from many cultures and backgrounds, and more often than not they feature boys as well as girls, usually in the roles of handsome princes, daredevil heroes, dangerously unpredictable giants, benevolent or not-so-benevolent kings, and black-hearted villains.
