    1. This is by and large the best anthology of "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tales out there, in my opinion, and I mean the original story that was conceived in the luxurious salons of the French nobility, not the countryside folktales of animal bridegrooms told by the peasantry, and definitely not retellings penned by contemporary authors. None of that. These are the very original ones, before and from round and after Madame Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve's 1743 fairy tale that's the mother of them [...]

    2. I will admit that I am a Jack Zipes nut. I love his collections. This book contains several French Fairy tales. The focus, like the title implies, is on Beauty and the Beast tales. Zipes includes less known versions. This book is also good because Zipes includes fairy tales by the women salon writers, who wrote more but were eventually overshadowed by Perrault Charles. This is a must read for anyone who likes fairy tales.

    3. I was curious to read the original versions of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale (La belle et la bete in French), so I checked out this collection of translated French fairy tales from the library. (I wasn't confident enough in my French to try to read them in the untranslated eighteenth-century original.) There's a great introduction which explains a lot about the historical context in which the tales were created - they were a product of salon gatherings during Enlightenment-era France, and [...]

    4. I signed this book out once when I was going through one of my many fairy tale crazes. I got sick at the time though, and only ended up reading one or two (or maybe three) of the stories. So it's on my list to read.

    5. This is one of my favorite childhood stories. I think this story gives off a great message about how looks are not everything and who you are inside is what really matters. It teaches you that you should always be patient with the ones you love because you will get that kindness back in return. The illustrator did a really good job of making the pictures go along with the story and making them come to life. This is a good book for kids to read because it teaches them a life lesson that they will [...]

    6. Rereading this with an older more wordly eye and it is rather shocking how sexist it is! There has only been one racist moment, which rather surprised me because it was so just thrown in there. Really rekindling my desire to write fairy tales right now!I love that Zipes, who I am a huge fan of, includes female authors along with their bios and talks about the time period as well as the atmosphere. Fascinating to read the stories that predate what we have come to know as the quintessential pieces [...]

    7. Giving this a solid three, because it gave me a good grounding in French fairy tales, most of which I had never read in [translated] original form. The author bios were good. I will remark, in case anybody decides to reprint this book, that the trade paperback is nearly 2" thick, and the spine quite stiff and unwieldy--difficult to hold open and read. Thinner pages or different paper stock might help.I also wish the sources of the illustrations had been noted--they seem to be from various editio [...]

    8. The history behind these fairy tales is fascinating and quite different from say, the Grimms fairy tales. Jack Zipes is a knowledgeable author who writes in a enticing way on a complex subject that is neither dull or pretentious. For me, this is not a book to read all at one, but rather a book one goes back to for a fairy tale before bed.

    9. I purchased this book in order to read an English translation of the older Salon tale version of "Beauty and the Beast", but found it to be an impressive collection overall. Zipe's translation is authentic and readable, and his introduction to the tales was very informative, giving new context to old favorites. I also discovered some new stories, which is always fun!

    10. I bought this collection back in high school during a time I did not fully appreciate the worth and value of fairy tales. It is a great start to be introduced or reacquainted with the classics that inspired and touched so many modern day fantastical stories. A must have for any English literature enthusiast.

    11. Jack Zipes is an amazing translator! His translations of all these tales are true to the originals, and I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interesting in the old French fairy tales of either Perrault or the several authors of "Beauty and the Beast."
