‘Fairy tales are time machines. They have preserved all the fears and hopes of our ancestors in the folds of their magical cloaks’ – Cornelia Funke

International bestselling children’s author Cornelia Funke has always been fascinated by fairy tales; they have crept into her own storytelling. In this enchanting anthology, Funke presents lesser-known stories that challenge the traditional ‘happily-ever-after’ alongside more familiar tales. From her native German, to snowy Siberia, from Japan to Vietnam, this collection includes wondrous tales from around the world, including ‘The Girl Who Gave a Knight a Kiss out of Necessity’, ‘The Frog Princess’, ‘The Boy Who Drew Cats’ and many more.
