Beauty and the Beast and Other Classic French Fairy Tales - Jack Zipes I will admit that I am a Jack Zipes nut. I love his collections. This book contains several French Fairy tales. The focus, like the title implies, is on Beauty and the Beast tales. Zipes includes less known versions. This book is also good because Zipes includes fairy tales by the women salon writers, who wrote more but were eventually overshadowed by Perrault Charles. This is a must read for anyone who likes fairy tales.
