I've read this book twice and each time I get more out of it. It's not a heavy read by any means. The author gives short histories and references to the fairy tale/mother goose rhymes which are totally intellectually stimulating. The information packed into short snippets allows the reader to go out and do further research into the topic or be satisfied with the explanation given. It's clear and concise and leaves anyone interested in the history of fairy tales and such like where and who they're about fulfilled.
