I just stopped by Tales of Faerie--you should follow it already if you don't--and noticed there are only two entries for Kristin's First ever Tales of Faerie giveaway! There are only two entries in the comments so far--not counting my post since I excluded myself from entering, I already own the book! She's giving away a copy of The Great Fairy Tale Tradition: From Straparola and Basile to the Brothers Grimm (Norton Critical Editions) and if you don't own it, you should.
Kristin has spent much of this year reading and writing about many of the important books in fairy tale academia, most recently The Meanings of "Beauty & The Beast" A Handbook by Jerry Griswold. Go on over and enter her giveaway and then browse through her blog entries to see what Kristin is learning and sharing.
