The Sleeping Beauty & Other Fairy Tales (Classic Collectors) Reviews

    I consider myself very lucky to own an original 1910 copy of this book. It is exquisitely beautiful. As a child, I didn't read it but would stare for hours at the beautiful illustrations by Edmund DuLac. It is very well written, of course, something which, as an adult, I can now appreciate fully. Given the words and phrases used, it does not lend itself very well to bedtime reading for children. But instead, a whimsical journey of lands far, far away for adult Prince and Princesses wishing to lose themselves in traditional fairy tales.

    It was wonderful to read a more classic version of these tales to my daughter than the Disney versions she knows so well. I'm sure she only caught a quarter of what I read (she is 4) but sat quietly for over 30 minutes at a time just enhanced with the beautiful language. I probably should have previewed Blue Beard first- was a little too dark and graphic for her, but we easily glossed over those parts. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    Quiller-Couch was Helene Hanff's favorite author. I could think of no better recommendation.

    3.5 stars. Nice edition, without anything new to add to the tales for the most part.

    Absolutely stunning -- inside and out. Exquisitely illustrated, this book contains four stories: "The Sleeping Beauty," "Blue Beard," "Cinderella," and "Beauty and the Beast." This is not for the kiddies, but is a beautiful addition to the shelves of collectors and those fairy tale lovers who remain young at heart.
