    Fairy Tales the Way They Could Be

    There are several stories in this book....I was reading this to my granddaughter last night, and she kept wanting more. Then when we finished, she wanted Luke's book "Ella Cinders" instead of going to sleep.

    An enjoyable retelling of known fairy tales from an approach that ties them all together with the storytellers in the book. Much like the way I read stories to my 3rd child, after I'd read them all to the other two--you have to add some creativity, and Luke did so well here.

    A good, enjoyable read, and I recommend it.

    wrong advertising

    Was listed under "read to me" books & is not. There are no pictures in this story. Cute stories- not separated from each other.
