This book is not only complete but very aesthetically pleasing. It is rare to find a book that has a cover and binding that shows so much craftsmanship. The ribbon bookmark is a great throwback to the old binded books. Definitely a great buy. Totally a collector's item as well as a great read.

This complete collection is beautifully bound. The book is illustrated, just not on every single page. They are scattered every few pages. If you love classic fairy tales this is definitely worth having.

These tales are not Disneyfied. These tales are intended for adult audiences. Not all are fairy tales. Some are Christian tales , while other tales are also included. Some are sad, some are strange, and punishments of the bad guys can be rather severe. At least on tale. is a bit disturbing. But an interesting read none the less. Red Ridinghood, Hansel and Gretal, Sleepybeauty, and of course Snow White are among the tales collected by The Grimm Brothers.

Just a bit of warning,. Like Hans Christian Andersen Brothers Grimm's are NOT Disneyfied and may not be PC nor all stories fine for little ones but still recommend for the collection of stories.

I bought this book as part of the Leatherbound Classics and it's gorgeous. I love the ribbon marker! The book looks great on the book shelf and would make a beautiful gift. The stories are fabulous and took me back to my childhood!

Absolutely love this book! I love Fairly tales and this book has the complete fairy tales. I just love to compare these original stories to the ones that they show on t.v, movies. I even gave another copy to my friend to read. I Recommend it

I can't wait to read this. I bought the boxed set with this, Edgar Allan Poe, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Sherlock Holmes and Illiad &amp; Oddessy last week and I am definitely starting with Grimm. My boyfriend has been reading the Alice &amp; Wonderland versions for a couple months now and told me about it's dark secrets. I have always been a Disney fan but I honestly wish they would have thrown in the darker sides just to make our inner demons smile. I'm excited!! I have a different series I'm reading right now but the moment I'm done....... &lt;3

I am quite pleased with this book, the leather binding is BEAUTIFUL and the stories engaging. However one of my pages has ink smeared across it which I was very disappointed about.

Unable to really say anything since they are Christmas presents and unable to open them. Very pleased with the outward appearance of all the books I have ordered from Barnes & Noble.
