This is collection of well known fairy tales by Grimm's and others, with an introductory on the history and importance of fairy tales for children. Most of them would benefit from illustrations, but if you just want the text, it's fine. Since I plan on handmaking a picture-book for my nieces, it suits my purpose. I do wish the Table of Contents was clickable, however.

The book includes:

One Eye, Two Eyes, Three Eyes
The Magic Mirror
Hansel and Grethel
The Story of Aladdin
The White Cat
The Second Voyage of Sinbad
The Golden Goose
The Twelve Brothers
Tom Thumb
Cinderella
Puss in Boots
Blue Beard
Sleeping Beauty
Jack and the Beanstalk
Little Red Riding Hood
Jack the Giant Killer
The Three Bears
The Princess On The Pea
The Ugly Duckling
Beauty and the Beast

Navigation for this ebook as well as others without active table of contents is simplified by adding your own highlight on the story title or chapter # as it first comes up. I got this version yesterday eventhough my wife has it on her kindle and complained about no table of contents. Last night as I was reading the stories, I highlighted the story title as if first appeared on the screen. After doing this several times, I went to view your notes/highlights, and lo and behold there they were with location # and title, highlight the title and press the 5 way control and you are now at the beginning of the story..... great for re-reading those stories to those grandkids who always want to hear the story again and again and again.
Hope this helps to all who are concerned about "No Active Table of Contents".

This volume contains a number of fairy-tales that adults will "recognize" as they are similar to popular favorites (i.e. Cinderella, etc.), but it also had some good ones that I had never heard.

Navigation is possible because each story is preceded by the word CHAPTER. If you search on the word CHAPTER, you get what looks very much like a clickable Table of Contents.

I downloaded this as a Kindle title some time ago and just started reading it today. Like many other reviewers, I too found the navigation cumbersome - the table of contents is not clickable. However, it is free, so I guess I should not complain too much. The fairy tales in this book are:

One eye, two eyes, three eyes (Grimm's)
The Magic Mirror (Grimm's)
The Enchanted Stag (Grimm's)
Hansel and Gretel (Grimm's)
The Story of Aladdon; or, The Wonderful Lamp (Arabian Nights)
The History of Ali Baba, and of The Forty Robbers Killed By One Slave (Arabian Nights)
The Second Voyage of Sinbad The Sailor (Arabian Nights)
The White Cat (From the tale by the Comtesse d'Aulnoy)
The Golden Goose (Grimm's Fairy Tales)
The Twelve Brothers (Grimm's)
The Fair One With The Golden Locks (From the tale by the Comtesse d'Aulnoy)
Tom Thumb (first written in prose in 1621 by Richard Johnson)
Blue Beard (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)
Cinderella; or, The Little Glass Slipper (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)
Puss in Boots (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)
The Sleeping Beauty in The Wood (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)
Jack and the beanstalk (written in French by Charles Perrault)
Jack the Giant Killer (from the old British legend told by Geoffrey of Monmouth, of Corineus the Trojan)
Little Red Riding Hood (Perrault)
The Three Bears (Robert Southey)
The Princess on the Pea (Hans Christian Andersen)
The Ugly Duckling (HCA)
The Light Princess (George Macdonald)
Beauty and the Beast (Madame Gabrielle de Villeneuve)

Being free, I would say this is excellent value except for the tedious navigation. Personally, this is for my own reading pleasure.

As others have mentioned, this book is difficult to navigate because the table of contents is not clickable. But the content is definitely there and is very enjoyable.

I notice that more than one person is unhappy with the navigation in this book. However, if you go to the "Popular Highlights" at the bottom of the screen, it is easily navigated. You can also choose a "Location" number, but since I only bought the book this morning, have not yet figured out how you know where you are in terms of a number. There is also the "search" option. If you know the title or even a word in the title, you can search for it. You can bookmark a place with a location number, if it's something you will want to return to frequently - as I know happens when reading to young children. I know this all takes longer than just clicking on the Table of Contents, but it's still okay. Hope you find this useful.

Bought this one while my Kindle was being shipped to me and FINALLY got around to reading it this week. There are several tales I had awareness of but had never read and only one or two that I had never heard of before. This is not a repeat read for me, but I am glad I got to catch up on all these stories that I missed out on in childhood.

A fun collection overall. I particularly enjoyed the "Arabian Nights" section, since those were completely new to me. Since it is fairly short and free, I recommend this to all Kindle owners.
