Picture Books based on Folk and Fairy Tales

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer "LaurenLanita" (USA)
The list author says: "I could not possibly list all of the picture books based on folk and fairy tales and this list only lists single story books. There are many many more anthologies for kids. Not quite picture books but with enough pictures to make them kid friendly. Hmmm...I think I'll do a list of those next."
