Reviews

Reading The Tale of Tales, Giambattisa Basile's 17th-century book of fairy stories, is both exhilarating and exhausting. If that sounds like a warning, it is. If that sounds like a promise, well, good news.

--Genevieve Valentine "NPR Books"

Canepa's edition, with its newly-commissioned pen-and-ink illustrations, seems to be aimed at general readers. Basile's Tale of Tales constitutes a crossroads in this landscape, and Canepa has provided a valuable service by making it available again in English."
