    Illustrations?

    In the description of the 1st World Publishing edition of this book, it states that the book contains 138 original black and white illustrations, but it contains none! What a disappointment.

    I almost didn't buy The Blue Fairy Book because of the reviews that stated there aren't any pictures in it.  There are pictures in the copy I received.  It's the Leatherbound edition.

    1st of a series of great tales

    This is the kind of book that every child should have in his or her personal library. It is as good as The Arabian Nights but, unfortunately, not as well known. Buy it for your kids and see how happy and excited it makes them.

    This is the most wonderful fairy story book, ever !

    This book was originally first published in the 1890's. The story-telling style and re-printed art reflect the original. The stories are extremely imaginative and well-written. This is a treasure to grow up with, and will ensure a vast imagination for your young one. Everyone should be so fortunate !

    Timeless

    I gave it a five because the stories are amazing and timeless. I don't like that they don't have any pictures. If you want to see the original book with the pictures go to google book previews. They have the whole book with the original pictures. Other than that, this is an amazing book that I'm afraid doesn't get much credit these days and that's probably due to the racism that some stories show. I read this book and my parents read this book but kids nowadays don't get to read the original tales, only the cleaned up tales. I wish they would sell these in leather bound or at least hard cover. Oh well...

    Firebloom

    Finally, she gets to a large room with several holes in the floor and walls. Firebloom stops abruptly, taking in the scene: mice were scurrying this way and that, to and fro, round and round, *everywhere.* She lowers into a hunters crouch, then leaps into the com.otion, killing three mice as she landed. As the others in the mouse colony scattered, Firebloom managed to catch five more mice as they frantically tried to escape to their holes. Since she was satisfied with the amount, she grabs the eight mice by their tais in her jaws and pads back to camp.

    Fraypaw

    She pads around the Old Twoleg Nest, scenting the air. She smiles and crouches. A mouse creeps from a hole; Fraypaw pounces quickly, killing the mouse. She manages to catch two more before returning to camp, glowing with truimph.
