    Lovely, magical and it keeps the 19th century charm like no other fairy tale I ve read The writing is very beautiful George Sand wrote the tale for her grandaughter and you actually feel like she is your sweet granny.I was impressed by the importante that is given to growing up, just like in other fairy tales, and how adulthood is always treated as the passage to not believing any I guess George wanted her babies to stay curious and innocent even in the worst times to come I ll have to search for information about the author.Read it and you will make a favor to yourself.

    I have read an edition containing three of the thirteen contes d une grand m re in French 1 Ce que disent les fleurs, interesting conversation between different flowers and the zephyr wind.2 La f e poussi re, where George Sand exhibits a surprising knowledge of the science of her time, mixed with a subtle touch of the ideas of Pierre Leroux, which point towards a belief in reincarnation and an anticipation of Nietzsche s Superman.3 Le marteau rouge, interesting review of the story of a carnelian stone moved first by a glacier, then by the waters of a spring, converted into a war hammer by a man of the stone age, used as a kitchen knife, lost for centuries, re discovered by an antiquarian, reduced by his widow to the state of a belt clasp, crumbled by a little girl to make soup for her doll, and finally reduced to a little ring stone, carefully preserved by another little girl.

    Advierto que en realidad solo he le do el primero de los cuentos, que es m s una novela corta El castillo de Cumbrecorva.Bien escrito pero aburrido y muy pasado de moda, una historia sobre la bondad infinita de una ni a buena, con ciertas referencias a la pintura que son lo m s interesante.Ejemplo de que no todo lo antiguo es cl sico, ya que no puede estar menos vigente esa imagen de mujeres ultra sacrificadas que siempre ponen la otra mejilla con una sonrisa.No repetir con George Sand y que conste que entiendo que debi sufrir mucho teniendo un novio pianista, que anda que no deb a ser pesado el pobre con el pianito.

    J adore sa fa on d crire et de se renouveler dans chaque compte sans tomber dans les clich s J aime aussi le fait qu elle laisse toujours une explication rationnelle en option tout en nous insistant choisir le merveilleux comme logique Ce sont de jolies histoires qui font sourire et transporte vers un monde r v , comme la parfaite chappatoire.

    Beautifully written stories with one common theme nature and its marvels often ignored However this particular edition Dodo Press was a huge disappointment so many mistyped words, I had to switch to e book, so beware.
