It's hard to imagine a better selection of seven tales from the classic fairy-tale repertoire nor one so generously and sensitively illustrated. Each tale begins with a double-page, richly detailed painting that invites the reader/listener into the world of each particular story. The author's retellings are leisurely, faithful and well suited to being read aloud - a full week's entertainment, one tale at bedtime each night. The septet includes "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Hansel and Gretel", "The Fisherman and His Wife", and "Rumpelstiltskin". A good addition to any child's home library.
