Top ten best fairy story collections chosen by CLPE Librarian, Ann Lazim
Ann Lazim, Literature and Library Development Manager at CLPE has chosen her top ten fairy stories in an article for Books for Keeps, (the children's book magazine online), November 2017.
Reflecting on her choice Ann tells us: "I’ve always been fascinated by folk and fairy tales and how similar stories appear across countries and cultures. The collections described here are beautifully produced volumes well worth sharing in the home and classroom and, importantly, read aloud well, reaching back to origins in oral tradition. A ‘fairy tale ending’ doesn’t always mean they lived happily ever after!"
