    Great Compilation of Traditional Fairy Tales

    These fairy tales are told in their traditional versions, and have great illustrations on every page. The illustrations aren't too scary. This is the best fairy tale book I have found. This can be read by very young readers but enjoyed by all.

    The detail, imagination and imagery in this book is the best I've ever seen. My son and I have so much fun looking at all the little characters that sometimes tell side stories of their own. It's endless fun that's a bonus to the main fairytale.

    This is a fun book

    This is perfect for fun stories to tell while resting, getting a child to read or use for bedtime stories. I love the pictures and the larger print. This is a great book at a perfect price.

    Loved this book

    We got this book when my first child was four years old, and it became a favorite of all my kids. I loved it because it re-told classic fairy tales with a wink, giving them a fresh and funny rendering. I particularly liked that the girls in these stories didn't simply swoon when a handsome prince came along. I enjoyed reading these stories as much as my kids. The illustrations were well done and very funny. Now that my kids are teenagers, we bought another copy for their five-year old cousin and they all told him how much they had loved the book. I highly recommend this one.

    Atrocious

    I got this in the clearance section of the bookstore- didn't bother opening it, I mean, they're fairy tales, right? The same old ones I grew up on. WRONG. These are shallow, modernized versions that depict shells of the characters in the original stories. It's almost like the stories were recounted at a frat party. One of those frat brothers is a great artist, though - I will give the book that!

    Terrible book

    I ordered this book online... after recieving it and reading the Three Little Pigs and another story, I immediately returned it to Barnes and Noble the very next day. I wouldnt even think of reading these stories to my daughter. For example, The three little pigs were thrown out of their house because their mother thought they were too loud. The Princess in the other story speaks horribly about the frog and has terrible manners......

    This book gives children a distorted view of life. Forget buying it!!!!

    Classic fairy tales are forever

    Every child should have classic fairy tales read to them and later, they can read them on their own.

    Great book to engage youngsters at bedtime, or anytime you want quality reading time.

    I purchased my first copy of this book for my 3-yr old grandson and read stories to him from the book at bedtime. He found many things to look at on the pages (illustrations are great), and was fascinated by the story line as well. Plus, the stories were 'sensitized' for young children: story lines and endings were non-violent. These are stories I told him orally from memory, cleaning up messy plot lines and endings, so I was thrilled to find a book with the same process. Every night he would pick a story and we'd read it together, eventually reading each story tens of times over the years. His desire to hear some stories over and over assisted in his learning words and eventually reading these and other story books himself by the time he turned 5. I have since given this book as a gift to my other grandchildren, and give it as a gift for young children every chance I get. Great for any time, but especially as a bedtime storybook.

    Hideous

    I am appalled that anyone rated this book five stars!! The most disturbing thing about this book is the messages it sends to children. Yes, traditional fairy tales send some disturbing messages, but this book takes that and attempts to modernize the tales with rather horrid examples of contemporary life. For example- the three little pigs are sent off into the world by the mother because they were too noisy and she lacked the ability to control them. In the frog and the prince- I would be horrified if my children acted and spoke to anyone the way the girl does. And since when does keeping your word and being friends with someone mean that you have to kiss them if that's what they are requesting? Anyway, I could go on and on but it's not worth it. Hideous Hideous book.

    Great For Ages 5-9

    My grandchildren ages 6 and 8 just love this book. It is full of great illustrations and has been modernized without destroying the classic appeal of the stories. They always want to read it and be read to from it.

    After purchasing this book, we promptly started reading 'The Three Bears'. In this book however it was called Goldilocks something or another. We read the story and it was not even remotely similar to the 'real' story. It has other rewritten fairy tales in it too. We ventured into 'Little Red Riding Hood' or the original title of 'Little Red Cap'. Once again, wrong...the grandmother did nt hide in a cupboard, she was eaten. This new book is not very well written. however, the illustrations are great.
