HASH(0x970fbd38) étoiles sur 5 The Best Fairy Tale Book You will EVER find 16 octobre 2002
Par Ed N - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Okay, I'm not exaggerating when I say this is the BEST book of fairy tales you will ever find in the English language. Certainly, there are books out there with more tales or more happily-ever-after endings, but this is the best. Period. I received it as a gift when I was a child and I absolutely adored it. The illustrations are truly gorgeous - most have a pseudo-Renaissance appearance to them and ALL have really amazing detail. They are also quite enormous, taking up an entire page and sometimes 2 entire pages! You can tell a real painter, not a typical kids' book animator, created these works of art. The artwork adds an extra element of classical style to these 28 stories, which have been gathered from all around the world. Some of the stories are familiar, some are not, but all have been translated with great care and love; this is immediately evident when you read even the familiar ones like Sleeping Beauty and realize that the details are a little different from the typical sanguine, Disneyfied versions you commonly see. These tales are probably very much like their original versions; in other words, they are not always happy, and sometimes they are actually quite sad. I remember as a child loving the stories yet fearing to read a few of them too because they were so sad. But this very trait is what makes them so dear to me beyond any other versions of the same tales that you might read ...
One last word - this is quite an oversized book - 11' X 20' or so. So if you buy it, be sure you have a large enough bookshelf for it, because this is a book you will keep forever! Five stars all the way!

My mother began reading this book to us when we were small, and it was read so much that it literally fell apart. My siblings and I have fought over the pieces for years, so much so, that a few years ago we all received xerox copies for Christmas. Because of the reprinting we all received a new copy for Christmas this year! It contains some of the loveliest illustrations I have ever seen and the stories are so unique! As an Elementary school librarian I have yet to see it's equal in fairy tale books. It is an absolute favorite at our house!

HASH(0x978c71c8) étoiles sur 5 Gail :bought this book back in 1964 5 décembre 2000
Par Gail A. Olson - Publié sur

I am so excited to see this book back in print. I bought this book for myself when I was 10 yrs old. My best friend "Ellen" had the book and when I spent the night at her house her mother would read us stories from the Golden Book Of Fairy Tales. Some of my favorite stories are Donkeyskin,Greensnake,and Bluecrest. The pictures are incredible. These are not your average well known fairy tales. I still have my copy and have read it to both my daughters over the years. They are now 17 and 23. My oldest daughter told me about 1 month ago that she saw this book was back in print. I was so happy. I have purchased 5 copies since, and am thrilled. I have taken a copy to work to show my friends and almost everyone has ordered one as it is truely a beautiful and unique book. I have one copy now for each of my daughters,in fact my 17 yr old asked me to read to her again out of it. I hope they will share it with their children and enjoy the stories as much as I did when I was a little girl. Buy this book, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

HASH(0x972ee078) étoiles sur 5 Truly a Classic to be recommended to all Fairy Tale lovers 18 juin 2000
Par Mary Laiuppa - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I own an original print of this book. It was much read and much loved. I even went so far as to have my original book rebound in leather when it was falling apart. I've looked for a second copy for years but just can't afford the $175-$250 price for a vintage copy. I am so pleased to see it is being reprinted and I can buy a new copy in excellent condition. I've ordered this book so I can have a second, less fragile copy and can't wait to get it. The illustrations are stunning and there are many unusual stories not easily found. This book was truly ahead of it's time as it contained stories from many different cultures before that became fashionable. You won't be sorry if you buy this book.

HASH(0x981bcdd4) étoiles sur 5 An Exquisite and Haunting Book for All Ages 30 mai 2005
Par C. A. Valentine - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Thoughout my childhood in the early '50s and '60s, I read every myth and fairytale book I could find, easily numbering in the hundreds. Amongst all of these, a small
handful truly rose above the rest. The superb storytelling of Marie Ponsot and haunting illustrations of Adrienne Segur continue to shine through the years since the book was first created. The Golden Book of Fairy Tales is nothing less than a classic, a gorgeous collaboration of art and story at its finest.

It was out of print for many years, and as an adult, I searched long and hard before
finding an original copy. (In fact, every year I would call my hometown library where
I first discovered the book to ask if it was going to be retired and sold, and always the answer was no!)
Golden Books has done an admirable job of reprinting what was originally entitled
simply, "The Fairy Tale Book", published by Simon & Schuster in 1958. Though the
original colors were more subdued, the depth and richness of the Golden Book edition are appealing.

Over the years, I've met a number of adults who have equally vivid memories of and attachments to this volume. Adrienne Segur's work, known for its lyricism and lush detail, has influenced many contemporary fantasy, fairytale and children's book illustrators and authors. Marie Ponsot was a gifted translator and scholar whose writing never condescends and creates a singular spell of its own.

Ponsot and Segur collaborated on two other children's books that were published in the US, "The Snow Queen and Other Tales", also reissued by Golden Books, (and available on Amazon) and "My Big Book of Cat Stories", English translation pub. 1967 by Golden Press, which, unfortunately, remains out of print. The artwork in "The Snow Queen" doesn't quite live up to the standard of Fairy Tales, but is certainly worth having. "Cat Stories" retains the quality of art in FT, and like the other two titles, contains tales not usually found in such collections. It is worth the effort to find! I am hoping that Golden Books with go forward with reissuing it.

I ultimately became a collector of children's fairytale books and art and created a lifetime in the arts because of books such as this one. Most highly and enthusiastically recommended!
