    1. This book contains Charles Perrault's classic fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty. In this classic/original version, King Stefan and the Queen wish for a child. When at last they finally get their wish, they name their daughter, Aurora. When they have a feast to celebrate her birth, the three fairy godmothers start to bless Aurora. Fairy godmother Flora gives her the gift of beauty, Fairy godmother Fauna gives her the gift of song, and Fairy godmother Merryweather starts to give her a gift but Malefic [...]


    2. Read it for Christmas times. Although, written much before Grimm bros version (who borrowed a lot from Perrault), they are much better written here. The only problem is morals - why, why would someone feed moral tales to children?




    3. Who needs the Brothers Grimm? These stories are dark enough! Charming illustrations by Walter Crane add to the effect. Surprised these have become so famous, but they were interesting enough.


    4. A flip through the table of contents may reveal a few unfamiliar fairytales. You may even ask, "Why didn't I find these in my childhood collections?" Read them and you'll find out why: There's gruesome murder, incest and misogyny aplenty in any old fairytale, but this collection highlights some salient examples.If you haven't already I highly recommend turning next to a collection of Angela Carter's own short stories. She's a far superior writer to that Charles Perrault anyhow, and her feminist [...]


    5. I don't know why I can't seem to find the exact same edition I own on .The one that I own is a kindle edition I downloaded for free from , which contains 5 stories: ✿ The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods✿ Puss in Boots✿ Blue Beard✿ Little Red Riding Hood✿ Cinderella or the Little Glass SlipperThose stories are kind of different from what I heard/read before. And to be honest I don't really like the Blue Beard story because, in my opinion, the story is too violence for children.But it's sti [...]


    6. This was a beautiful book with plenty of colored pictures to catch the eye. The only thing about the artwork is the formatting seemed to be off for the background drawing seemed to be the edge of a page so you had the dark brown line running through the words and even though it was see-through it didn't help. I enjoyed the various collection of stories that were included from Charles Perrault and although a few of the stories had some variations that I hadn't read before it was rather entertaini [...]


    7. La historia que le cuentan a los niños a está versión hay una similitud, pero ya dandonse a conocer la trama, ya es distinta a la historia que conocemos, dado a que ya le dan como una segunda parte. Se puede dar semejanza en la realidad dado a que cuando el principe se lleva al palacio a Aurora, su madre no hace más que hacerle la vida insoportable a la princesa que hasta quiere comerse a ella y a sus hijos. Ya el chiste con la realidad se cuenta solo. Agradable lectura, de está historia se [...]


    8. Beautiful artwork by Walter Crain, text is edited for space and slight political correctness ('Bluebeard', though oddly the sexual subtext of Riding Hood was left intact!), but otherwise is a beautiful ebook for young and old.


    9. This was another book I encountered through my grade school's library- a friend wrote a book report about Bluebeard's Wife and Hop o'My Thumb. We thought they were great at the time, but who decided gory and violent stories were appropriate for children?
