Ok, for all the fairy tale lovers out there, and I know there are many of us, here is a fabulous holiday giveaway on SurLaLune blog, open to everyone!!! You have until Dec 22/14 to enter. The prizes are a must for any fairy tale library:
"Register for the chance to win a set of 3 SurLaLune Library Titles:
Bluebeard Tales From Around the World, Cinderella Tales From Around the
World, and Beauty and the Beast Tales From Around the World. Go to the SurLaLune Fairy Tales Giveaway to enter for a chance to win.
To make it more interesting for us all, I am also asking "What fairy
tale item is on your holiday wish list?" I will share the answers during
this week and and next with the SurLaLune readers, so be sure to give
me an "online name" to use when you enter for me to share on the blog. "
I want especially the Beauty and the Beast Tales From Around the World, and Bluebeard Tales From Around The World.
I enjoy comparing how the tales change from country to country and century to century. All the little tweaks and changes give clues to what is changing in that society.
What concerns are new? Are the stories being changed for the audience? How are adult versions different from children's versions, if there are any? So yes. This is a lovely giveaway for the holidays.
