"100 Classic Stories" is helpfully organized by age group. Stories for the four to six year-old's and the seven to nine year-old's are helpfully categorized in the table of contents.

Stories are also categorized by boy or girl protagonists, royal protagonists, animal protagonists, spells, legends, and mythical creatures.

Most of the stories have been censored and sanitized for younger readers, even the villains fates are never too terrible. For instance the story of "The Three Little Pigs" has been changed so that all of the pigs live and the big bad wolf only falls into some hot water and then runs away. Even the section for older readers is adapted this way; the mermaid from "The Little Mermaid" is rescued from becoming sea foam by fairies.

Every story has lovely, detailed illustrations in different styles that show exactly what the text describes.

I found the inclusion of different myths from cultures that are usually overlooked in the fairy tale section to be quite refreshing, and interestingly enough these stories escaped the censoring the other fairy tales in this book received. Native American stories, Egyptian stories, Japanese stories, and others are included. ( )
