If you love the delight, enchantment, and even bite of fairy tales and folk tales then do take a look at this collection of books. I’ve chosen a real variety here, from sculpture sitting as a window to the soul, to the Brothers Grimm, through to folk tales dancing in another world, and some thoroughly modern stories with the backdrop of a fairy tale.

As with the traditional stories, sugar and spice is pushed to the side, instead you’ll be tested, emotions will be speared, and fear on occasion will stalk your thoughts. So with art, collections of short stories, and novels waiting to bewitch, entice, and beguile, we invite you to step into a world of make-believe.
