Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 6 Nineteen popular traditional tales selected from the works of the Grimm brothers, Andersen, Perrault and others form the contents of this fine collection. Ehrlich drew upon many sources, listed in back but not keyed to individual tales, and her literary but not effusive retellings remain faithful, for the most part, to the common canon. (Exceptions include Hansel's holding out a knuckle to the witch rather than a chicken bone; Rapunzel's twins are missing; and the prince's mere presence rather than a kiss wakes the Sleeping Beauty in the Wood.) The soft pastel colors of Goode's pencil and watercolor illustrations give a misty, faraway quality to Once-upon-a-time, but they are too much alike and occasionally too bland to be totally effective. Still, it's a good companion volume to Prelutsky and Lobel's Random House Book of Poetry for Children (1983) and a nicely packaged collection that will give pleasure to many a grateful child. Susan Hepler, formerly at Ohio State University, Columbus

    A wonderful gift to share with a grandchild.

    I purchased two of the same book and sent one to my Grandchild, age 6, in a distant state. We set daily times to go on Skype and practice reading the fairy tales. This is a marvelous game which she adores and is learning to read aloud beautifully. She does a paragraph and then I do a paragraph . It is an informal play lesson which we both enjoy and which is, no doubt, excellent for her studies. I recommend this activity to any and all grandparents who want to cement closer relationships with their families.

    Great Book of Fairy Tales

    This book was read to me when I was very young and I was very excited to find it again. The illustrations are beautiful. Most of the well-known fairy tales are included. However, stories from the Brothers Grimm have, of course, been adapted so as not to be so grusome. I loved it as a child and I love it now!
