2.0 out of 5 stars Too brief 14 Jan 2010
Format:Board book
There are some nice things about this book - the illustrations, the tabs, the thick pages, and the CD - but the stories are so condensed as to be ridiculous. They are too brief, even for the shortest attention span - they are told in a very plain manner and all the life has been edited out of them. I'm sorry to say that I dread my children asking for this book.
I'd recommend "The Usborne Book of Fairy Tales" instead where the stories are still nice and short, but the fun bits have been left in and the illustrations are even better. I love reading that book with my children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for toddlers 12 April 2013
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
I recently bought this book as a present for a friends 1 year old daughter after having it for my daughter several years ago.

Although 1 is a little younger than this book is aimed at, it is well illustrated and provides a shorter version of classic fairy tales ideal for toddlers who have a short attention span.

This book is ideal for parents to read to children, or toddlers can have a look at it independently as the pages are thicker and easy for little hands to turn.
