They are lovely little books full of colours and pictures and she loves them. All have been adapted at the end ever so slightly to remove the rather chilling ends that used to be about when I was child.
Highly recommended for younger children
Thoroughly recommend them.
I really don't understand the negative comments, but I suppose anyone is different and has different needs and expectations.
The text is also child-proof (no scary chopping of the wolf, no eating grandma ...) which is nice: my parents once told my daughter their version and she seemed a bit frightened by the wolf/woodcutter/grandma ordeal.
I own several books of "First Favourite Tales" and this is true for all of them.
Nice illustrations. However, the way it is written is a bit grating, some of it rhymes in an odd way, and some of the sentences seem clumsy to me (especially the last one!). The fact that it is paper pages make it easy to rip, probably doesn't matter so much for the range it is aimed at, but my grabby little one might rip it and be sad about that!
I give it 4 stars because my daughter loves it so much, I think that says a lot more for it than my silly opinion!
Edit : I feel like I was slightly unfair before, as we have tried a few more versions of this story and they are all worse than this one!
