I inherited these books from my mother and absolutely devoured them over the years - in fact, I think my love of literature stems from these books. I can still close my eyes, pick a title in my mind and see the illustrations. I adored the tree and pathway to the castle in the distance from the endpapers. My own son grew up on these books and they are still readable and the beginning of a great classical education.

This was the book of my childhood and it still remains the absolute best source of fairy tales and children's stories. I give the credit to Miller's editing/writing. These may have been traditional tales, but they are told in a depth and with a mastery of writing not to be found in Grimm brothers' or in Andrew Lang's tales. Miller deftly adds a myriad of details to breathe life into the stories. The sentences flow smoothly, sweeping the reader along on a magical journey.

This anthology series from the 20s and 30s featured some of the world's greatest writers. (Though I didn't know that at the time and didn't care) All the books in the series were fascinating with beautiful endpapers and classic illustrations. Wish someone would reissue them - currently trying to get them on ebay. One of my all time favorite reading experiences.
