The majority of fairy tales in this book are familiar: Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, etc. I enjoy reading fairy tales and finding all the minute differences between different versions. This collection was no exception, though it does contain one tale I've never encountered: "The Light Princess." It shares some similarities with Sleeping Beauty: an evil witch curses her niece with a lack of gravity (both physically and emotionally) because her brother, the king, forgets to invite her to the baby's christening.
