What I want to share with potential buyers however is what a pleasant book this is. The book is not large but a small size that fits well in the hands. The pages are printed on paper stock with a pleasant texture and a wonderful smell. If you are a bibliophile then you appreciate the smell of good paper. This book has it. The dust cover holds up well to use and overall I am very pleased with this version of the book. I have a few others I have picked up at second hand sales but this one is my favorite to actually hold and read. Most pleasing experience.
One caveat, the cover says "complete and unabridged." That is wrong. There is at least one politically incorrect fairy tale that has escaped inclusion here. There are other widely available reprints that do include "the miser in the bush" which is itself euphemistically entitled-- see the Barnes and Noble version and perhaps buy it instead if you want a "more complete" and "more unabridged" version for your library. Nevertheless, the small size and gilt edged paper of this volume makes it a wonderful gift perhaps for a younger reader.

Love the little book cozy to hold and the stories are timelessPublished 10 months ago by Terri Miller
Very cute book, but small in size. There are a lot of stories, but still some old English used in the stories if you were looking for something more updated. Read morePublished on January 17, 2013 by Jennifer
This is the entire text, however, please note that the book size is similar or slightly less than that of a reader's digest booklet.Published on December 6, 2012 by Jacob
