5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tales
Took me back to my childhood and the fun of reading the old Fairy Tales, enjoyed reading some of them to my grandsons

3.0 out of 5 stars Illuminating
Never thought I would be reading fairy tales again, but this book resparked an interest. Some of the tales are better than others, and maybe not quite as I remember from my childhood, but good to read as an adult. They kindled (no pun intended) a desire to research further the origins of the tales etc. The notes at the back are interesting. Would recommend.

I do remember reading the Chinese version when I was little, but I don't think they were originally English. Danish possibly?

3.0 out of 5 stars Some i'd never heard of and others told in different ways. OK., 24 April 2014

For a free book this is fine. Probably not great for young children to read themselves I would of thought though. Not heard of some of the stories before and other were similar to the classic fairy tales but told in a slightly way. Sent me to sleep at night anyway. And for a free book, you can really complain.

This review is from: English Fairy Tales (Kindle Edition)
As the title says this is a collection of fairy tales, maybe not 100% English? But written in a narrative that you can understand as being told around the fireside before the intrusion of the television.
I would recommend this to anyone who has small/young children and likes to read to them at bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars free book, 14 Mar. 2013

This was downloaded for nothing, so cannot complain. The books that are available for free download are not up to date or best sellers, but there are some good classics and books of interest. Worth looking through for what's on offer !
