Very enjoyable

I've never outgrown my love of fairy tales. This collection includes a few of my childhood favorites (which was a nice surprise), as well as many that were unfamiliar to me. The narrator, or reader, did a wonderful job of bringing each story to life, and I found it quite enjoyable to listen to.

Wonderful Performance

I loved this performance. The stories are wonderful for children.
Although there are some that don't give the best moral messages.
Others have some violent, serial killer reference (Mister Fox) that I wouldn't read to children at bedtime. For adults it is disturbing, but for little people it could give them nightmares. Although, the message to always see where your future husband lives before marriage is something everyone should listen to.

Nice stories that you don't hear often

It was fun to see the variety in culture. The story of Rumplestiltskin, for example, changed a lot.

Love this like I love all fairytales!
