This is the authoritative text for many popular fairy tale titles. Each story includes a valuable introduction. The illustrations are beautiful, but do look better in the hardcover edition.

This is a terrific reference book for anyone teaching a literature class. Especially teaching in a class of young students. I came uupon this book as a required text in a Children's Literature class at the University of New Mexico.
