These stories of wicked sorceresses, beautiful maidens, golden geese, and dashing princes have inspired countless adaptations and become part of the very fabric of our culture. To read them again is to be transported to enchanted forests and gothic castles, but also to childhood, and to a realm of the imagination where good always triumphs over evil and the most important life lessons are imparted through the irresistible magic of a story well told.
