I enjoyed this book of fairy tales curated by Angela Carter; some very familiar as antecedents to well known tales like Cinderella, others were complete new. Lots of humor and the tales crossed the globe.

I've been wanting to read something by Angela Carter for awhile now, but haven't come across any books. I found this book at a library sale and got excited when I saw her name. Unfortunately she's only the editor, but it's still a cool book! Plus check out the awesome illustrations!

#RiotGrams Day 26: I got these fabulous books of #FairyTales from a librarian friend who also left Singapore last year after living here for around ten years. I think I got several suitcases worth of treasures such as these from her personal, gently-used, beautifully-curated collection.

batsy Treasures indeed. Fabulous 😍 2y

Have to love a fairy tale book with hillbilly stories that include dismemberment!

Edit: I forgot to mention that this is actually the SECOND Virago Book of Fairy Tales, which is not yet in Litsy's database. I will have to look for the first one!

A librarian friend is leaving Singapore. We have just packed FIVE boxes of books to be shipped to my former elementary/high school in Manila as part of our literacy project for our 25th year Homecoming this year. The shipping of the books will be shouldered by the International School Library Network, for which I am immensely grateful. This is my personal loot from my friend's amazing collection. Truly an awesome book collector.
