Editorial Reviews

Review

"This series includes four books which explore four of the fairytales and myths that we take for granted....Not only are the stories fascinating, but despite their origins, each one will be familiar to everyone....The books are efficient in explaining where the stories come from and their mutations over time and land....These books are definitely an asset to multicultural literature and make the comprehension of other cultures that much more accessible."-Multicultural Education

..."professionals will be very grateful for this sensitively written, thoughtful, and accessible interpretive collection."-Youth Services in Libraries

"Teachers seem to be looking for prepackaged sources that do a lot of the work for them. This series fits that criteria well....The versions of the story included were unknown and well presented."-Off the Loom

Top Customer Reviews

By Heidi Anne Heiner VINE VOICE on March 30, 2000
Format: Paperback
Hearne has provided Beauty and the Beast fans and teachers with two valuable resources. Her first book, Beauty and the Beast : Visions and Revisions of an Old Tale, discusses the history and various versions of the tale. This book, Beauties and Beasts, is a collection of tales that are related to the well-known Beauty and the Beast tale. The tales come from various cultures and periods in history. Hearne provides short discussions of the tales, but mostly allows them to speak for themselves. The stories are suitable for all ages so the book will work well in the classroom, library or at home. The book emphasizes humanity's similarities and differences across time and space by presenting a small collection of its folklore.
