My teenage daughter asked for this book for Christmas.

And it is nowhere stated on the book that those are the stories of the OUAT show, simply that's its a collection of classic fairy tales.
Katharina Nieves
Same with the t.v. series on ABC Once Upon a Time I like how its suspenseful and makes you want to read more cause i know I do.

Kudos for bringing together the ORIGINAL classics without pandering to the "ooooh this is too Sordid" crowd. When I was young some 60 years ago, I read the originals. This book has the versions I read so long ago.....not waterered-down alternatives some academic might think more appropriate because it might "hurt the children" if they read something where bad guys win and good guys loose.

Being an adherent of the TV show with the same name as this book I can only state that my Kindle Fire downloads each new episode Monday morning, thanks to a Season Pass. Rumpelstiltskin was not a bad guy in the original fairy tale. The boasting father, the greedy king, the daughter who made a deal (understanding the terms) and reneged were the very beautiful bad guys who cheated and won, IMHO. I'm with Team Rumpel/Gold as far as this show goes.

I do think this book might contain clues for viewers of the TV show, as to "How far they [the writers] are willing to go"

I'm a person who like to actually holding a book to read. I haven't read it yet but did skimmed thru. This book contains typical Grimm's tales that are written very short. I love the ABC's Once Upon a Time show so I blindly pre-order this book even tho at the time, Amazon didn't have any description with which tales, the order of the tales or what kind of illustrated pics will be inside. After getting the book, I was so dissappointed. Come back here to write my review and noticed Amazon finally loaded pictures of the inside contents and a little more detail description. It is not beautifully illustrated as described. And the few illustrated, they are in black against the white pages. I was assuming this book will be illustrated with colors and at least one illustration for each tale. It's not a collector's book by all means so I strongly don't recommend you buying, especially if you like to collect well illustrated books or read from an actual book.

Love this book, it's fun to bring all the old storytales into one. It is not like the tv series once upon a time. It is just the original stories put into one book. Each chapter a different story.

This book may not have some of the things you wanted in a story book but it does have some fascinating incite of some of the fairy tales that are seen on the hit show. Also does have a foreword from the creators of the show which is also interesting. I got this book on Christmas Day and I was so excited that I got it as I was about to order it before Christmas myself but I am glad I waited. I also got this other book for Christmas and it would be great for anyone who is looking for more then what this particular book has in it. The book is titled Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics). It is a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys the storytelling of these amazing fairy tale stories. It is just 18 dollars as well but I also still recommend this book on here as well and for the price it isn't too bad. I hope this review will make everyone have a more interest in it. I really recommend this book if you are a big fan of the show Once Upon A Time.

This book I recommend if you are not into this book but are still a fan of the series.

I like the illustrations, they look unique and beautiful. The stories are good, however they are pretty brief, but I've never read the majority of them before so I didn't have any expectations. The presentation of the book is nice and I'm glad I purchased.

My teenage daughter asked for this book for Christmas. Its a tiny book (almost like a children's book) so I was surprised when I opened it. She was thrilled so I guess it's exactly what she was expecting.

I read this entire thing on the plan ride over and back. I love the stories! Its not really related to the tv show, but more of a collection of Grimm Tales from the original. I love it and didn't expect it.

I love watching Once Upon a Time and thought this book would have the stories behind the OUAT stories. Not so.
