The illustrations are masterpieces of beauty; some are quite poignant and some are simply the loveliest things you will ever see. I loved to draw as a child and The Golden Book of Fairy Tales was a major influence upon me and my drawing style. I knew that I could go anywhere I wanted, after I saw the illustrations which graced the stories in this book.
I do not recall certain illustrations in this book being grey-ish in color. I suspect that that is a moneysaving device as this book is very reasonable in price for such a large and sumptuous book. It really doesn't matter. Just getting this book back in my hands is a great thing! The illustrations which are in color are heartbreakingly, staggeringly gorgeous. For me, this book is truly all about the illustrations. I recommend it to anyone of any age who has a love of fanciful, beautiful, wonderful books!
The layout of the stories make for an easy read at bed/story time and the large illustrations capture my little one's attention quite well.
My only reservation about it is its large size. Although I do enjoy its size, it makes storage a pain as well as keeping hold of it while I read to her as she sits in my lap. But it isn't much of an issue.
