About the Author

Jan Beveridge is an independent researcher. She lives in Elora, Ontario.


"Children into Swans provides an excellent overview of the history of fairy tales from Perrault to the nineteenth-century collectors/authors such as the brothers Grimm - fascinating and accessible, it will be of great interest to a broad range of readers." Joanne Findon, Department of English at Trent University
"Beveridge provides a concise, comprehensive, scholarly, and fascinating read on myths and fairy and folk tales from Europe, including Scandinavia, during the pre-Christian and Middle Ages through the 19th century. Recommended for mythology scholars and general interest readers alike." Library Journal
"A persuasive tracing of the pagan origins of many elements in the fairy tale tradition. [Beveridge's] personable, conversational style throughout the book takes the reader along on a journey of discovery-back through centuries to early pagan tales that are, indeed, obscure to the modern reader. She includes many of these tales in the text itself, a real boon. An extensive bibliography and pronunciation guide are included. Recommended." Choice
Beveridge's comparative, magpie-like approach, gathering together tales from the Old Norse Havamal to Harry Potter, presents the reader with an attractive collection, glinting with stories." Elizabeth Dearnley, Times Literary Supplement
