In this series I share my passion and (ever so slight) obsession with fairy tales and other children’s stories. Yes, I have to make that distinction as one of my favourite “fairy tales” is Peter Pan, but it’s not technically a fairy tale according to these rules we humans love to live by. I may also branch out into the realms of myth and fables in this series – and I apologize in advance for my blatant and utterly inconsiderate disregard for the rules.
But if you don’t care about the technicalities, you can enjoy book reviews and general musings on the history of fairy tales, the psychology of the characters, and pretty much anything else I want to talk about. My aim is to turn the rest of you into
addicts fairy tale appreciators.
