    1. Yo siempre recodaré este cuento así:Cuando llega un oso blanco a tu casa, te pide a tu hija, y tú se la entregas sin rechistarAl este de Sol y al Oeste de la Luna es un cuento noruego bastante bonito, algo cursi, pero servirá para contarselo a mis futuros hijos,eso sí tengo.Me interesó el cuento porque está basado en el mito de Psique y Eros, y además porque estoy leyendo este libro East que no me gusta mucho porque la protagonista es demasiado perfecta; sin embargo al leer este cuento, [...]

    2. This is a beautiful retelling of a classic fairy tale. It would make a lovely gift for your little princess. My only complaint, and it's quite minor, is that I was not as impressed by the illustrations as I had hoped I would be. Based on other reviews, this certainly puts me in a minority. For such a rich tale with lots of imagery, the illustrations are pretty bland and a few were downright creepy. Also, why does the prince appear to be wearing a woman's nightgown? Like I said, small complaint. [...]

    3. Classic Norse fairy tale of castles and trolls. This is different than the standard accepted fairy tale as the heroine must save the hero. She is not a weak female lead. The young girl is sent to a far awy kingdom to marry a prince. However the Prince's kingdom is under a spell. The girl must travel to other lands in order to break the spell and save the Prince's kingdom. The grade level is acceptable for Kindergarten - 3 and lexile measure is 920L.

    4. This is one of my favorite books from childhood--important to have this version for the illustrations--and I read it again recently while thinking of Italo Calvino's take on compression and repetition in folktales. Also the object as a means to move the narrative forward through time. But now I can't stop thinking about Gretchen Mazur's lecture on Forbidden LookingI'm cursed. Or enchanted.

    5. This was one of my favorite books as a child. My grandmother always gave me books illustrated by Michael Hague and this is one of his finest.

    6. Really cute fairytales that I am unfamiliar with (though they do bare some resemblance to French, Italian, and British ones). Fun for kids.

    7. The text is wordy and awkwardly stripped of all mature content and the illustrations had great backgrounds but stiff figures with a bad CGI feel to them that are off putting.
