    Review text
    Retold in true fairy-story tradition, these attractive books are perfect for older children to read to themselves or out loud to an adult, and contain three stories, each one revealing human emotion, cooperation and fears to overcome. Pen and ink pictures and easy-to-read text work together to tell the tales of how the sisters rescue their poorly father by falling in love with a beast, turning a poisonous snake into a handsome prince and triumphing over terrible spells that have been cast upon a brother. In every story the sisters are different; some are kind and good, and some are bad and thoughtless. But the situations they have to face will make each one use her imagination and individuality to triumph over the difficulties and dangers that each magical story places before her. There are four titles in the series; each and every one revealing great adventures within enchanted worlds of magic and mystery. The stories come from places as diverse as East Africa, China, India, Norway and Germany. Perfect paperbacks to enjoy at bedtime or in the car, and books that you will love to read again and again.
