J'avoue avoir été très déçue, voire même affligée par les contes présentés dans ce livre. J'ai voulu persévérer et j'en ai lu la moitié, mais ensuite j'ai abandonné... Maintenant, les goûts des uns et des autres ne sont pas identiques et je serais curieuse d'avoir l'avis d'autres lecteurs.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent English Fairy Tales 21 janvier 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

These stories were written in a rough tone and have an unpolished feel to them. This is not necessarily a detraction, and some tales were better than other, but it was occasionally wearying to read them in the poor grammar of colloquial speech. Hence, four stars. Also, it lacks an interactive table of contents.

Tales included are;

Tom Tit Tot
The Three Sillies
The Rose-Tree
The Old Woman and Her Pig
How Jack Went to Seek His Fortune
Mr. Vinegar
Nix Nought Nothing
Jack Hannaford
Mouse and Mouser
Cap o'Rushes
Jack and the Beanstalk
The Story of the Three Little Pigs
The Master and His Pupil
Titty Mouse and Tatty Mouse
Jack and his Golden Snuff-Box
The Story of the Three Bears
Jack the Giant-Killer
Childe Rowland
Molly Whuppie
The Red Ettin
The Golden Arm
THe History of Tom Thumb
Mr. Fox
Lazy Jack

Whittington and his Cat

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Collected by Joseph Jacobs 7 février 2010
Par Mariana Chaffee - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is, in fact, the collection of stories that Joseph Jacobs collected in the late 19th or early 20th century, inspired by the work of the Brothers Grimm. Jacobs traveled throughout the countryside of England, Scotland, and Ireland, and he wrote the stories down as much as possible in the language in which they were told to him -- old fashioned folklore collection. These collections used to be available in Dover Editions, although I don't know if they are still. (Do Dover books ever go out of print???) The table of contents is not navigable, which could be a nuisance, but free is a good price. You could try constructing your own "table of contents" using bookmarks or highlights....

The stories are enjoyable, and fun to read aloud to kids. I'd give it 5 stars if the table of contents were navigable, take off 2 for the nuisance factor, add one because it's free. Four seems fair.

If you want to read the original versions of our childhood Fairy Tales this is a good read but the characters are portrayed in a slightly different light than I remembered them. One example is the story of the Three Bears. In my memory it was Goldilocks and the Three Bears and she of course was a little girl. In this book the invading character (of the 3 bears home) is an old woman and it sort of changed the whole fairy tale as I remembered it. "English Fairy Tales" also has more violence in it and references to killing of characters, so I would recommend reading this with an entirely open mind and no preconceptions of the stories you heard as a child. It did open my mind to the fact that all the fairy tales we knew as children came from another group of people in another country and were written by personalities of the times. There were lots of "Tales" that I had not heard before also. I suppose this was more educational for me, rather than entertaining. I wouldn't read the versions in this book to my grandchildren.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprising, intriguing and wonderful 23 avril 2013

In my review, I'm more comparing how this book meets my expectations based on what I have read from the more well known fairy tale compilers like the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Anderson. Some of these English fairy tales are very familiar, but they are not always quite how I know them.

The first impression I had was that this book is more varied in terms of 'fairy tales'. There are a lot of folk tales, and silly children's stories that don't have any moral or resolution really ("Master of all Masters springs to mind, as a short tale that seems to have the point of reciting silly words). There is also a fixation on the name Jack for a lot of these characters. I just thought that was interesting. I wonder if they are all the same person. There is also references to King Arthur and his court which I found very fascinating because some of these tales seem grounded in realistic detail. They mention Kings who reigned and real locations in England as having seen the events in the story. It makes the tales a little less fantastical, even when there are giants roaming the English countryside.

Probably the tale that most surprised me was the story of Dick Whittington which now I realize I confused with the French "Puss in Boots" fairy tale. Dick Whittington's story is much less magical, and more about being lucky enough to have a very industrious cat who likes to hunt mice. "Mr. Fox" kind of stood out to me for its implied romance, gruesomeness, and the confrontation by the heroine. There are not too many stories in this book that are the same ilk. And lastly a story that I was surprised to see included was "The Golden Arm" which I was always more familiar with as a ghost story. But now I know it is definitely a very old one.

With the more realistic settings, sometimes whimsical nature of a few tales, and the English slang that is used at times, this book of fairy tales is rather different from what I'm used to. I find it very interesting to read the original of familiar tales and see how things have changed. For instance "The Story of the Three Bears" is more familiar to readers as "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." In the original story there is no Goldilocks - rather the intruder is a very disagreeable old woman. This book is definitely worth a read, for something different than the usual stories and perhaps to find some new favorite fairy tales.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Scary Tales 10 juin 2015

Really nice collection of Folk Tales ( Fairy Tales or Scary Tales). Every culture has stories that pass down through the generations and this was an interesting read. Some of them only slightly different in the animated versions and story books I grew up with. Some have a moral to the story and many are really frightful and violent. The name of the character most often used appears to be Jack. Several have the beginning Once upon a time....and the phrase "Fe, fi, fo, fum" is used by several giants and evil peoples. So if you want to scare your little ones into behaving or giving them nightmares this is the book for you. But if your like me sugar coat everything, they will be spending more years as a grown up than as a child.
