This book is filled with all sorts of traditional fantasy stories. None of the stories had a twist they all were just how I remembered from my childhood. I choose Cinderella to write about. It starts out with a girl whose life is perfect until her dad remarries a wicked lady. The new wife and her evil daughters were mean to Cinderella. They took her nice clothes and made her wear rags and made her clean up the house and be at their beck in call. The prince in the town was throwing a ball to find a bride and Cinderella's god mother comes in the picture and does her magic and Cinderella is the pricess of the ball. She looses her glass slipper on her way home and the prince searches for weeks for the girl who owned the shoe and when he came to where Cinderella stayed he saw that it was a perfect match ad rescued her from her evil step mother and step sisters.

I have always enjoyed Cinderella. This book touches my heart because it gives hope when you are haveing a rough time.

I would have this book in my classroom library and I would read it aloud to my students. It would also be fun to act it out. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0894717685, Hardcover)

Once upon a time in Germany, some 200 years ago, the brothers Grimm began collecting unusual tales from friends, relatives, and a variety of acquaintances. They eventually recorded their stories, which not only found their way across the ocean, but also around the globe. The stories survive to this day as Grimm's fairy tales, in which wolves, witches, and cruel stepmothers abound. Children get lost in the woods, grandma gets eaten by a wolf, and robbers steal into houses in the dead of night, among other misfortunes. But never fear! Precocious children, beautiful princesses, and enchanted animals prevail in the battle between good and evil. Seven artists provide lively illustrations for the stories included in this treasury of tales.
