    My memory of this cherished book from my childhood included the illustrations which are painfully missing in this edition.When I first heard of Beauty and the Beast, I though it was a ripoff of this much loved original, but although they share important similarities, I guess they have different origins But the lovely SMART young maiden held captive by a repugnant male, only to be revealed later as a handsome lover is the stuff dreams are made of Particularly when a child is in elementary school.This one is defiantly Scandinavian and I can see why I loved it My Swedish grandparents were proud of me.

    You could spend upwards of 10 for the newest version of these tales, but I d as soon as stick with this classic version containing superb, detailed illustrations by the acclaimed Kay Nielsen Some of my personal favorite stories include the vile Prince Lindworm whom consumes two of his brides, The Husband Who was to Mind the House which made sport of the ever so careless husband and The Lassie and the Godmother with special appearance by the Virgin Mary I kid you not Be sure to start from the very beginning as it has a terrific index of every illustration and mention of what it portrays with links to each piece of artwork A great find and a tremendous bargain For another fine book of tales illustrations not needed please see my review for Running With the Caribou by Robin Moore.

    One of my first memories is being a baby on my daddy s lap, listening raptly as he read to me He didn t read little kid stuff, but read what HE was interested in, often from the Book of Knowledge which, if I remember correctly, contained East of the Sun and West of the Moon I loved this story, and would beg him to read it again and again.I didn t see it again for years, until I saw this version I still love it, just as much as when I was a child even so, since, as an adult, I understand it better, and it also brings sweet memories of my dad s love for reading.

    I ve loved this East of the Sun, West of the Moon story since I was a young girl and was pleased to find it in the Kindle version This particular book has various other short stories included which make for a fun read.

    The stories are religious than I thought they would be, but not bad Some times I feel like the stories are a little repetitive, you know the witches and trolls are always evil, but the goodness of the pure and beautiful people prevails and love conquers all The book isn t very long and the pictures are well done It s a nice quick read.

    It was a delightful surprise to see this book listed on A grade school teacher used to read us stories from it every day, and later I checked it out of the town library many times In later years, my children enjoyed the book too, and then my grandchildren became fans of it as well The illustrations are memorable, and were a treat to see again.

    What a great way to introduce children and sometimes the reader him or herself two fables, fairy tales, or folk stories of the Scandinavian countries Our thirty year olds and our pre schoolers loved the book.
