I remembered this book from my childhood. I remember reading the stories and just fell in love with the fairy tale genre. The witch in the first story was really scary. She definitely could give Freddie Kruger a run for his money. The illustrations were so artistic and captivating. A favorite from days gone past.

This little book captured my heart when I was little. Three stories (two famous, one not so much) are illustrated with a weird, dreamy perfection, and the text is simple and clean, perfect for reading aloud or for those just starting to read on their own. A lovely book.

I love Little Golden Books, more specifically I love Children's Fairytale Books. The Version of Beauty and The Beast is different, and refreshing- to the one I grew up with.
I also thought this Version of Rapunzel was sweeter and had more conflict and miracles, than some others I've heard before.
I had never heard of Toads and Diamonds before, but, I quite enjoyed the Tale.
This book took me less than 10 minutes to read.
