Format: Hardcover
Every page contains either lovely pictures or borders. They are so good that if you couldn't read you could follow the stories just from them.
We really enjoyed the stories of "Manyfurs" and "Mother Snow" but our favourite was "Snow White". In this book the Snow White story was nothing like the Disney version. The Queen was truly horrible and it was much more exciting.

Collector's Edition 20 Aug 2002
By Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Philip has faithfully translated this collection of the Grimm Brothers' anthology of oral folktales. He has chose to include twenty of the classic German tales in this beautiful edition. Hardcover, with gilted pages, and metallic highlights in the illustrations creates a very stunning picture. Philip has selected some of the most well known favorites, but also a few that modern times have forgotten. The reading level is approximately third grade, though the stories look as though they would be better understood and more entertaining if read aloud. There tends to be just one illustration per story. While they are wonderfully done and framed with more artwork, they don't do much to tell the plot of the story and are not always matched up with the text. Every classroom should have a collection of Grimm's fairy tales, but this isn't the one. This book seems to have been designed more for collectors and to sit on a shelf than to be handled by youngsters on a daily basis in a classroom environment.
Why 4 stars?:
This is not a book to be read, but one to be collected and set upon a shelf to collect dust. The illustrations are beautiful and the information provided about the tales and the brothers is excellent. However, this book was not made for children to read their favorite tales from.
Lovely Pictures 11 Jun 2012
By L. Maupin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just love this book because it has the lovliest pictures by famed illustrator, Arthur Rackham. It is also very large sized so you can fall into Rackham's strange world more easily. There are black and white pictures on each page, a repeat of whimsical animals and elves etc. The print is larger than normal which is helpful for the youngster and oldsters

Avoid Kindle Edition 15 July 2008
By R. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a review of the Kindle Edition. The table of contents is not linked to the individual stories. Since this is a collection of stories, it makes the Kindle Edition book unusable -- you would have to click, page-by-page, to reach your desired story.
