    Thank you B&N for this gem!

    I was looking for Andrew Lang's fairy books, and stumbled upon this. Not only does it contain all of the fairy books, but it has all of the fairy tale books I loved as a child. The books on mythology are an added bonus, and are a must-have for Harry Potter and Percy Jackson fans. You can sure see Tolkien's influences in the Norse legends book.

    Note: This took awhile to load the first time, but was faster after that. This is a huge collection,so that's probably why.

    Good Anthology!

    I like this book. It was pretty complete with all the different fairy tales I wanted to have for my child's collection. My boys especially liked that it had Bullfinch's Mythology, which today is pretty cool especially since the return of mythological films and books--it's a great companion to them! I highly recommend this set for parents who are looking to engage their children in reading things other than "Angry Birds" app help books.

    a fairy tale lover's dream :)

    It's wonderful having all these stories in one volume, the only problem is deciding what to read first!!! I would definitely recommend this, especially for literary students & anyone who enjoys multi-cultural tales.

    Great Content, Poor Navigability

    If, like me, you want to buy this collection for Andrew Lang's colored fairy books, it might be best to look elsewhere. I was disappointed to see that each volume is one massive file and that you cannot jump easily from story to story.

    Flowers, Fairies, and Fantasy

    I am absolutely fascinated by this marvelous collection! The collection of fairy books especially. As most of the stories leave the problem unsolved or is rather bittersweet, I get an empty, lonely feeling that chills and warms; bringing to mind a wild, desolate plain of blistering snow, but I don't feel numbness...the wind howls so softly it is a wisp of a whisper... this is a mysterious feeling indeed.

    Thank you.

    Thank you so much B&N for making this amazing book avalable. I am a huge J.R.R. Tolkin, J.K. Rowling, and Rick Riordan fan. This book really helped me see where those authors got their ideas. This book was worth the money!
