    Wow!

    This book is wonderful! I love how they make it interactive for easy access to the stories! I became interested in fairy tales after reading the Sisters Grimm and this is perfect because it has every big shot fairy tale I've ever heard of! I recommend this to anyone and everyone :)

    I loved this!

    True the Grimm fairy tales are, for a lack of a better word and no pun intended, grim. I found the stories quite enjoyable and not just the Grimm fairy tales but the others as well. This is definitely a fun read and shows just how sugar coated Disney made their movies.

    good for older kids

    All the favorites are in this book! This book is good for older kids as the "old" language they use is hard for smaller children to stay interested.

    On and off glitch

    This was good, worth getting, and easy to navigate. But it had a glitch where it would stay on the same page but I couldn't shut my nook off. I repetedly hit off, but it took a while. It stopped but still.

    Grimm's Fairy Tales - Recommended for Everyone!

    If you remember these beloved stories when you were a child, then these fairy tales are a wonderful way to get away with your own imagination. I used to watch some of these tales on tv, but never actually read the books. Now I am glad to own this collection for my own library and enjoy many hours of pleasure reading. Where can you get so many classic stories for 99 Cents? I own other collections from B&N; it's very economical. Read this collection and bring back the child in you!
