I love these tales brings back memories of school, where one of our teachers would regulary read one of the stories.
Never heard any of the class complaining so I think everybody enjoy them. in fact it made me want to read more.
If you enjoy fairy tales and folk tales these are a must for all ages.
I brought a couple of these before I found that there's a kindle edition with all 12 books for the price of one,
which has a table of contents so I can go directly to a story in any book.
These single edition books don't have one so you have to flip pages for any story.

Although I am now 89 years old this book was familiar to me when I first started teaching. I thought children should have their minds taken off the drabness of an industrial housing estate and be introduced to the time old fairy tales and myths. The children loved these stories and so do I.

I was hoping for something different, yet not sure what exactly. It just didn't click. The layout was appalling as not a lot of thought went into setting the different stories out properly - has no-one ever heard of page breaks?

This is a compelling book with fabulous creative thinking in every tale. If this is your first visit to free books as it was for me give it a go! As with another review really enjoyed dipping in and out. Was dissapointed when the book ended.
