A little too brief..!,
This review is from: The Golden Book of Fairy Tales (Classic Golden Book) (Hardcover)
First of all, its a great collection of stories. But they are incredibly brief versions - Snow White and Cinderella are quite epic stories, but these versions wizz through the stories far too quickly and the story is over in about 6 mins. I think they might be good for reading very slowly to very young children, but i found them quite unsatisfying. When great stories are condensed in this way, alot of the magic and build up is lost. The illustrations however, are beautiful and evocative.
