Folk and Fairy Tales
This concise version of Hallett and Karasek's anthology is designed to provide a more inexpensive, flexible collection of important fairy tales. Like the complete edition, it includes comparative versions of classic tales (Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and a selection of coming-of-age tales) from different cultures and time periods; colour illustrations; and a brief selection of related criticism.
Martin Hallett has retired from teaching and lives in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia. Barbara Karasek teaches at Vanier College in Montreal. Together they have published articles and presented seminars on fairy tales and have been co-organizers of the Montreal Children's Literature Conference.
