Fairytales, folktales and mythology are my favourite genres within the infinite realm of the written word. I’ve grown up with fairytales and have loved them since as far back I can recall. For instance, I can remember devouring fairytales and cultural folktales from my primary school library, then retelling them to my sister at night at bedtime. For me, fairytales are timeless, often conveying a simple truth or fable in a beautiful elegant way, as they are retold throughout generations.
I already have a small collection of fairytale books (see below!) and even some fairytale apps on my phone, but I was very excited to get my copy of Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales.
