Fairy tales are written to both entertain and educate, and published in the shadow of the First World War, F. A. Steel’s retellings of forty-one ‘English Fairy Tales’ is a classic collection of such stories which range from the familiar – ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, ‘Little Red Riding-Hood’, and ‘The Three Little Pigs’ – to the perhaps less well-known – ‘The Black Bull of Norroway’, ‘Nix Nought Nothing’, and ‘The Red Ettin’ . Originally published in 1918 it reflects the nationalistic concerns of the period. Steel takes the reader on a journey from Cornwall to Bamborough Castle, via a palace by the sea and high into the sky, where a giant lives. These magical tales are brought to life by one of the best-known illustrators of the time, Arthur Rackham.
