5.0 out of 5 stars Superb. 14 Jun. 2012
By Pyewacket TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like another reviewer, I read this on my phone. It was thoroughly enjoyable and it contains all the fairy stories that I recognise from a child.

I would highly recommend this nice little book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old school fairy tales! 9 Aug. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I really rather enjoyed reading this. Although I am now nearing 23 I found it fascinating to delve into the world of fairy tales again, exactly as dramatic, non-sensical and gruesome as I remember them being. They just don't write them like they used to!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairy tales - don't we know them all? 28 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first tale was totally new to me. I tried it on my grandchildren (simultaneous translation into italian). And they now refuse to let me read them any other! what more could a grandad wish for?
But to go back to the start, I believe this to be an American anthology, it was published in 1905. And, as in any collection of 25 tales, there's a wide degree of variation between the offerings.
Many of the tales are classics, some wandering from the Classic version that was in favour when I was young, and not a few being totally new to me. Some of them I was glad to read and to compare with what I recall hearing sixty years ago. In particular Ali Baba and the lamp, and the forty thieves.
Not an earth shaker, but nice to have around. Worth having if you have grandchildren - and if they allow you to introduce something new!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know 31 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book I bought it to see what it was like as I have a grandchild on the way and thought that it might make good reading to sit and read to him at night or when he is upset. I even found that I liked reading it myself. It is great for children and adults alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 6 Sept. 2013
By SBno1 TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First off, this is free on a Kindle, so that gets it a star straight off.

I found this book more of an interest than a good read. Not something you may want to read cover to cover, but something to satisfy your curiosity on old fairy tales. Some of them I read corrected me in what I thought was the true tale, but most were what I expected with some I had never heard of.

4.0 out of 5 stars New view on ' old' fairy stories 30 May 2013
By Mrs
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought I would read the old fairy stories told to me in my youth, and those I had seen on tv, on the stage and in films; it was a pleasant surprise to read these old takes in more detail and without the necessary happy ending. Most stories I knew but some were unknown to me but enjoyable. Very difficult book to put down.

4.0 out of 5 stars fairy tales 21 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I feel this is the sort of book every child should have access to; this is a compilation of all those stories we grow up with, but more importantly they are left un-sanitized by the modern era requirement to de-gender, de- stereotype, to produce anodine disneyesque make-belief. The child meets all input at his/her own level, so lets stop taking the bite out of their life. I read it to my five and three year old grand-children - they love its reality.

Great stories, some not appropriate for little children. Can't skip chapters which makes navigating book awkward!
