However, on receiving this book, I was immdediately disappointed with the quality; a hardcover, spiralbound, as mentioned on the description, but the paper inside is very flimsy, and with all of the thin horizontal strips on every page (that enable the reader to mix up the stories) and I can see this wearing out and ripping very quickly, despite having 2 children who take great care with their books. Also, the illustrations aren't as vibrant or great as I'd hoped, and for me (and most importantly, my son) it just isn't that funny. There are a couple of obscure stories in there too, that I don't even know, so I doubt my kids will!
Sorry to be such a killyjoy, and maybe it'll grow on us in time, but I certainly don't view it as worthy of "classic" status - in our family anyway. Thumbs down from us, I'm afraid....
Turning over a varying number of pages for each sentence part results in wonderfully silly sentences that my kids have enjoyed since they were 4 and 2, and still do at nearly 7 and 5.
An example to give you the idea is "Cinderella grew and grew to the size of a house and dreamt about marrying a bowl of soup".
This book and You Choose! have given us hours of fun. They are well worth the money!
The illustrations are great and the different font styles and sizes add to the visual interest.
I plan to get a copy for my niece when she's a little older and knows more fairy tales as the joke is lost if the child doesn't know any of the stories.
