    " Really beautiful, enjoyed reading it. Unfortunately the imagination is polluted by the image of the character seen in Disney's movies and other adaptations. So there is not a great place imagination when reading, but the stories are really good. "

    " After reading some reviews on these fairy tails, I was a little apprehensive to read them with my children, but I was pleasantly surprized by them. The kids loved the three silly wishes. His version of Cinderella was praised by my kids as the best version yet. Blue Beard seemed to be a version of Beauty and the Beast, but was too gruesome I thought for read aloud with my kids. But, overall, a very enjoyable book. "

    " This book contained 8 different fairytales. A couple were common fairytales and a couple were fairytales I had heard for the first time. I thought this book contained fairytales that has details that were not appropriate for young children. I would say that this book would be good for middle school children. This book also had long pages and difficult words appropriate for older students. The pictures were very detailed with tiny lines and lots of colors. "

    " An amazing book filled with the "usual" fairy tales. But the Gustave Dore illustrations make it totally worth the purchase. The print is a little big though. But I suppose that was done because the Dore illustrations are a full page each. Though the stories are familiar, and okay for children, I doubt they'd enjoy the Dore wood cuttings. The are, of course, without color and can be kind of creepy. Which is why I like them. "

    " I adore Fairy tales. My only disappointment with this book was that the Grimm's tales were not nearly as dark and they could have been. I prefer the original Grimm's tales before they started editing them for children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex Mendonça | 12/3/2013

    " It was very interesting to read the "untold stories". The ending of "The Sleeping Beauty" shocked me the most, in a good way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 6/27/2013

    " I had never heard of Perrault before I came across this book. I enjoy his fairy tales though more than Grimm. Maybe because some of Grimm's tales are more abstract than I like and because Perrault is, for lack of a better word, less grim. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aileen | 6/14/2013

    " Lovely to read the original of many childhood favourites, though they are much darker here. Some new ones added into the book too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Bebenek | 5/16/2013

    " Classic stories, wonderful and well-reasearched translation, many notes on the texts and further readings--what more could you ask for? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 1/28/2013

    " I had never realized that so many familiar tales (Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast) had originally been set down by Perrault. Intersting to see them collected together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 5/10/2008

    " The clever morals make Perrault's retellings special. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 11/2/2007

    " I know they are Fairy Tales...still, I maintain that growing older is inevitable, but growing up is optional. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiona Robson | 4/21/2007

    " This was fascinating. I only really read it because of its connections with the Rennes-le-Chateau mystery and Le Serpent Rouge, but enjoyed it nontheless. "

    " Interesting to say the least. "
