From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-Between these covers are 10 European fairy tales that are part of our basic cultural vocabulary. They are traditional stories from Grimm and Perrault, so familiar that the lack of source notes is not a glaring omission. Hayes has simplified and shortened the stories by eliminating some of the more elaborate descriptive passages. Her language is vivid, clear, and retains the spirit of the originals. Lynch's pencil and watercolor illustrations are delightful, enhancing the handsome layout with its wide margins and large dark print. He combines realistic painting (a solemn Cinderella and a Hamlet-like prince) with broad caricature (the stepsisters)-sometimes in the same picture. Scattered throughout are isolated small figures, such as Cinderella's mice and lizards or Rapunzel's rampion. Especially fine are the truly middle-aged soldier who follows the dancing princesses and a sublimely contented Puss-in-Boots, mission accomplished, reclining against soft cushions while reading. These are not easy-reader versions of the tales, although they probably won't faze third graders. A very attractive addition.
