5.0 out of 5 stars Gail :bought this book back in 1964, December 4, 2000
This review is from: The Golden Book of Fairy Tales (Golden Classics) (Hardcover)
I am so excited to see this book back in print. I bought this book for myself when I was 10 yrs old. My best friend "Ellen" had the book and when I spent the night at her house her mother would read us stories from the Golden Book Of Fairy Tales. Some of my favorite stories are Donkeyskin,Greensnake,and Bluecrest. The pictures are incredible. These are not your average well known fairy tales. I still have my copy and have read it to both my daughters over the years. They are now 17 and 23. My oldest daughter told me about 1 month ago that she saw this book was back in print. I was so happy. I have purchased 5 copies since, and am thrilled. I have taken a copy to work to show my friends and almost everyone has ordered one as it is truely a beautiful and unique book. I have one copy now for each of my daughters,in fact my 17 yr old asked me to read to her again out of it. I hope they will share it with their children and enjoy the stories as much as I did when I was a little girl. Buy this book, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I also had a copy of original and loved it, but then was misplaced. I emailed publisher to ask they put a special edition of the original with purple cover out. Illustrations and paper were better. I would gladly pay more for a faithful copy of original, even though the new edition I got is still the best book of fairy tales out there.
