Hey guys,

Okay, so when I was a kid, my grandmother gave my sister and I a book of fairy tales. This book, I remember, was massive, into the hundreds of pages. Every story was illustrated, it was paperback, and contained stories of Grimm, Perrault, Wilde, and Anderson. All stories were in their original form, I remember the Little Mermaid being threatened with the idea of being turned into sea foam. One of the first stories in the book was Anderson's, "Emperor's New Clothes", and it also contained Aladdin. I remember the cover having the title in the middle, with various detailed creatures and characters around it, esp a giant up top leaning over the text. I can tell you it was old, not at all an edition of the 90s, but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it. If there's anyway you can help me find this book, I'd be most grateful. Thanks!

I see this is an old posting but I thought I'd venture a guess, "Hilda Boswell's Treasury of Fairy Tales". Good luck in your search. Please post when you figure out the title. I'm curious.
