some you may not recognise in the index, as they have their original titles, such as Cinderella, is called Ashputtel
stories can be sorted by: title, author, genre (fairytale, short story etc)
you can set it so that you can see how many pages there are in each book (which can be helpful, as a few of the short stories are not all that short)
also you can use a bookmark to keep your place (up to 3 per book)
one thing to remember is that the stories are in their original format, Ashputtel has one of the sisters, cutting off her toe to make the shoe fit, in tom thumb the wolf that swallows tom has his head cut off, things like that, (something to keep in mind if your child is the sensitive type) others are just different from the version you may remember reading when you were a child

Handy little collection of classics to take on a trip. But annoying because of the misprints that crop up all too frequently.Published on 15 Feb. 2013 by Amazon Customer
A fantastic selection of all the old classics. A much handier way to bring reading material than having to bring a bag load of books especially when travelling.Published on 3 Feb. 2013 by Rainbow
