KIRKUS REVIEW

Last minute arrival (the early copy lost in the mails) of what promises to be a favorite Christmas gift item, in a collection of fifteen favorite fairy tales, simplified for the youngest listeners. Perrault, Hans Christian Andersen, the Brothers Grimm- and some folk tales from other sources have been told with a view to those things Tasha Tudor has made her own-the everyday views of woods and fields and homes. Old favorites are here:- Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, Puss in Boots, Thumbelina, Jack and the Beanstalk, Red Riding Hood, Cinderella. But Tasha Tudor couldn't bear unhappy endings so rescues Red Riding Hood and her grandmother from the stomach of the wicked wolf- but is willing to let Rumpelstiltskin come to a deserved end! Charming- if excusably sentimental- illustrations in full color, with Tasha Tudor's exquisite attention to minute detail, will keep small spectators entranced. Surely popular. Four color heavy board with cover overlay binding. A gift item for shops and department stores more than for public libraries.
