I have made a habit of reading fairy and folk tales of all cultures over the years. I bought this as a real book in thoughts of passing it on to my granddaughter. But I don't think these would hold her attention. And increasingly, I really question the wisdom of exposing young children, particularly females, to the traditional fairy tale genre. Like the Disney "princesses" thing, which drives me crazy, I don't think these are good life lessons for raising modern females. Finding your prince and "living happily ever after" I would characterize as a way less than optimal life strategy for a modern female.
So this book won't be going to my granddaughter. Maybe when she's grown if she becomes a folk tale aficionado, she can have it with the rest of my collection.
