This book of folklore is meant for children ages 4-8. This book contains many fairy tales that I was already familiar with, such as "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," and "Snow White." It also includes ones that were new to me, such as "The Brave Little Tailor" and "The Fisherman and his Wife." To be clear, these are not the original fairy tales as told by the Brothers Grimm.

What's so brilliant about this particular edition of the Grimm's stories is that each story is illustrated with drawings from a variety of classic texts. So "Cinderella" might have pictures from various editions of that tale that were published over 100 years! The pictures are gorgeous, but the stories, as is typical of contemporary Grimm's collections aimed at children, have been watered down. Originally, these were bloody, gruesome tales.

Traditional stories compiled in one book! Told from a more accurate, yet manegeable perspective on the Grimm brother's original tales. This book can be read from 3rd grade and up, but it can be read as a read-a loud for younger students.

Traditional Fantasy: A collection of the Grimm Brothers traditional stories. This version is awesome because of the eclectic mix of classic illustrations from tons of old renditions of these fairy tales.
