What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Six fairy tales are told anew and spiced with picturesquite a few. It took a pair of Steigs to do ‘em: ‘Twas Jeanne who wrote ‘em. William drew ‘em. Here’s Rumpelstiltskin, in a rage; The Frog Prince hops right off the page; Hansel and Gretel thwart the witch; Jack slays the giant (and gets rich); Red Riding Hood and Gram survive; The Beast and Beauty wed, and thrive. That’s quite enough. The book’s a killer. To say more would be idle filler.
