I was confused when I got this book because the Table of Contents displayed online is not the actual table of contents in the book. I was dissappointed to find out that this volumne does NOT include Thumbelina or The Little Mermaid. The actual collection of stories differs. In addition, I wish the book included more illustrations. The Table of Contents in the actual book includes the following tales: The Garden of Paradise, Little Tiny, The Fir Tree, The Storks, Little Ida's Flowers, The Red Shoes, The Ugly Duckling, The Princess and the Pea, The Girl Who Trod on a Loaf, The Angel, The Bottle Neck, The Snow Queen, The March King's Daughter, The Swineherd, The Little Match Girl, The Emperor's New Clothes, Hans Clodhopper, Great Claus and Little Claus, The Wild Swans, The Nightingale, Elder-Tree Mother, Holger the Dane, The Bell, The Shephedress aned the Sweep, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Roses and the Sparrows, The Old Street Lamp, What the Good Man Does Is Always Right, The Tinder Box.

This was a much loved (and often read) book from my childhood. I had opened it so often that the pages were falling apart. What a wonderful surprise to find it again - the stories and illustrations just as I remembered them! This new book sits proudly next to my well-worn, tattered old friend.

There isn't much to say considering the book, it is a classic and I recommend it to all.

I purchased this set of CDs for my 5 year-old thinking she would use her imagination while listening to 'enchanting' fairy tales (versus watching some 'mindless' video). The Emperor's New Clothes and The Ugly Ducking were interesting stories and we enjoyed them very much. Unfortunately, though, many of the tales were 'dark' and included stories about a soldier who cuts an ugly witch's head off, an old man whose fingers were chopped off, a man dying and finally at death's door, etc. I couldn't allow my daughter to hear such descriptive 'adult' subject matter. I found the stories very inappropriate for young children. I didn't even enjoy them because of their depressing nature. The description of these CDs is not detailed enough and very misleading. I do feel that Erica Johns did a good job of narrating, but since these are fairy tales which are geared toward children, I cannot recommend this set.
