A good version, good translation, I only wish they had more of their fairy tales. Overall, it's a good selection.

(4.5, if I could give halves) Overall this was a very good book. The fairytale plots were very intriging, although some of the details were weird and VERY improbable (but hey, we're talking fairytales). I loved most of the stories-- both the ones I know well and dont know well. They were very entertaining and amusing! Each one has a different theme, ranging from things like "be pious and good" to "don't tell lies". From "keep your promises" to "keep your wits." From "don't talk to strangers" to "listen to your parents," etc, etc. There were parts of some plots that I didn't get at all, one example was in "The Twelve Brothers," where The King randomly got this genius idea that if his 13th child was a girl, they should have their 12 boys would be put to death. "What???" thought I. But these stories are filled with so many strange happenings that there really isnt a point to questioning them. (Anybody else notice that "The Twelve Brothers was perplexingly similar to "The Seven Crows"?). Despite its strangeness at times, a very good read and definately one of my favorites. ES
