They are not mushy-gushy or knight/ princess hyper-sexist fodder. They are enchanting folk tales that arrive at the "moral of the story" in funny and surprising ways. I also recommend the book, "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears" by Verna Aardema. If you love this you might also love Julia Donaldson's books (and DVDs) "The Gruffalo" and "The Gruffalo's Child".
Our favorite is 'who's in Rabbitt's House'. Very clever and funny. "I am the Long One. I eat trees and trample on elephants". Poor rabbit has an intruder (the Long One) in her house that won't let her in. Others try to come and help but to no avail. But frog, who rabbit didn't trust, who has been watching and rolling with 'mirth' at all the attempts, may just know what to do.
