This book is not your traditional fairy tale book. It has most of the tales we have all grown up with but with a grim twist. Its sick, twisted, and disterbed all in a good way. I have to say this is one of the best 'fairy tale' books I have read in a long time.

My boys love this book; and in a day of competing with movies, video games, and computers that is truly saying something. They love for me to sit with them and read them the wonderful stories in the book. They always ask, "Mom did grandpa read you this one when you were little?" I always answer "Yes he did." It creates a special bond between us. This book holds a special place in my heart and I think it will in yours too.

This book is beautifuly illustrated. It has famous stories like Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, among others. However some of the stories are very violent and disgusting almost. This is not a book for little children, it is rather for pre-teens and adults. I found it very interesting and I am very glad I bought it, it is a book that should be in every home.
