I am using of for the Reading Women challenge

This collection of 22 fairy tales very clearly illustrates the following
Stepmothers, monkeys, evil people and sneaky animals abound and will always pay the price of their wickedness.
Good behaviour including looking after the old or weak will be rewarded.
And never ever open a box you are told not to open.

In essence, these are the same stories told across the globe. The context and characters differ but the morality remains the same.

I quite like the (to me) unusual setting for the stories and found the collection very accessible.

Worth dipping into and out of, one story at a time
