Pressestimmen

"Schacker ... draws attention to the way actual editions were produced, marketed, and consumed. Those physical objects, the books themselves, contain the best evidence of their own histories, and how literature took part in cultural life."-Virginia Quarterly Review "This engaging text makes explicit the ways in which fairy tales provide 'a space in which to encounter and then reflect upon national identities and differences.' ... Highly recommended."-Choice
