A Book Of Enchantments And Curses

A Book Of Enchantments And Curses by Ruth Manning-Sanders

Tales from around the world -- the theme allowing for a lot of scope.

A stepmother sends a monster after her stepdaughter and pretends the girl is dead already. A princess has an evil Destiny. A frog really is turned back by a kiss. A man who turns into a bear rescues a princess from being locked up. And more.
