    Get spell check.

    I like the stories, they are different from most of the more common fairy tales we usually read. The big problem is the terrible spelling. At times I feel as if I'm writing the stories, trying to guess what some of the words are supposed to be.

    An almost forgotten classic

    Collected fairy tales from all over Europe are in this book such as The Enchanted Storks, The Wolf and the Fox, The Golden Mermaid, The Fisherman and his Wife, and more. A book that deserves to be brought back into the mainstream of children's reading.
