Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, Little Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast: these are the fairy tales that have captivated children through the centuries, the stories that make their eyes grow wide in wonder and joy, the ones every child should experience. Through his exquisite illustrations and artful retellings, Michael Foreman captures all the charm and mystery of 14 eternal classics. His radiant paintings shine with color: the glimmering gold of Cinderella's coach; the rich hue of Red Riding Hood's cloak; the vivid green of the beanstalk rising up to the sky; the luminous, almost transparent white of Sleeping Beauty's gown and bed. This is a truly special collection that every child should own--and that every parent will take pride in sharing.

Good illustrations/text ratio -- my 3 year old is starting to read chapter books with the big kids, so I have to make sure I'm picking books that will still have enough pictures to keep her interested and engaged. OK fairy tales...
Since this was a gift for a 4 year old, her review is that this is a very good book.
