Got this for reading to my 4 year old, but some of the language was a little too advanced at first, so I just changed some of the wording when reading aloud. The stories are quite long, ideal for bedtime stories and the illustrations are beautiful, but there are a few too many pages with text only, so probably not that entertaining for younger kids. Will definitely buy other books in this series.

Illustrated Grimms Fairy Tales

This was a great purchase. Perfect for my 7 year old son. Lovely illustrations with some old favourites and new stories mixed in. More suitable for the over 5's as some of the stories are a little frightening. Very pleased with the purchase.

This book is lavishly illustrated with clear, bright pictures that appeal to children from an early age. The stories are light revisions of Grimm tales, suited for small children, with the worst of the gore taken out. I have read these for my 3.5 year old daughter, and she loves them - just enough drama and action and still the good end happily as should be. Higly recommended, even for those who are not native English speakers - I translate into Norwegian when reading aloud, and the stories are well written and easily read even for the young learner of English.

I grew up on Grimms fairy tales and this book of multiple tales is outstanding. Perfect sized book and such beautiful artwork that brings everything to life. Darker stories than may be for some parents tastes for their little ones, but there are lessons in each and every story. From the feel of the cover, drawings and quality of the text this is a must buy and I would highly recommend for anyone that is a fan. I would probably only say your child may not be too interested until they are at least 2 years old as there is a lot of text to read to them.

This is the best book I have ever bought for my daughter. I thought the stories might have been a bit long for my four year old but on the contrary she loves each and every one of the stories which include for example hansel and gretel, twelve dancing princesses, little red riding hood and Tom Thumb. As an added bonus it looks really great on her bookshelf.
