This pack has beautiful illustrations, which makes it a good contemplative or meditative pack. The fairy tales in the accompanying book are very abridged, but are worth reading if you are interested. I think some of the choices are strange. For example why Red Riding Hood for the fool? I would have thought that Goldilocks was better. The court cards differ from the traditional Rider Waite as do some of the major arcana. I would say that this pack would be confusing with conflicting meanings for those that are new to tarot. I think the packaging is excessive and the book is unnecessary. Great illustrations which, when offered a choice of packs, some querrants are immediately drawn to as they are familiar. I love the illustrations, but the rest is unnessary. A pack for those with some understanding already of card meanings.
