A noteworthy review of Fairy Tale Collection from Library Media Connection on August 1, 2014

An afterword in each book in this series offers and historical note about the origin of the fairy tale at hand and discusses different versions of the story over the years. Each book also mentions the lesson to be learned. For example, in Beauty and the Beast, the lesson is that love conquers all or that true beauty is found on the inside. Staying true to the original versions, each abridged tale is told in a child-friendly manner that will appeal to young children of a new generation. Cartoonish illustrations depicting the main characters with oversized heads offer a multicultural view, which adds appeal and updates to the stories.
