The Goblin Pony and Other Stories
Scary Fairy Tales
The story "Beauty and the Beast" is well known to most people--or is it? In this retelling of the classic fairy tale, the dark details of the original story return. Readers who have only seen the famous movie will find the beast much harsher, but the goodness of the young woman who comes to know him remains enchanting. Richly colored images and illustrations accompany this tale as well as "The Goblin Pony," "Tom Tit Tot," "The Goblin Pony," "The Jellyfish and the Monkey," and "The Strange Visitor." Though from other cultures, they offer the same eeriness of more familiar tales.
