Berlie Doherty and Jane Ray are unafraid to deliver childhood magic in it's purist form, before we get our nasty little "them or us" hands on their inborn innocence. Often it is just social laziness. The stories are told well, though without any newness - these are familiar, comfortable stories.

Berlie Doherty, author of many books for young people, including Carnegie Medal-winner Dear Nobody, says fairy tales "are enchanted dreams. We remember them as if they had been sung to us while we were under the spell of a long deep sleep. And according to acclaimed picture-book illustrator Jane Ray, "fairy tales are the earth beneath our feet, giving us roots and helping us find our place in the world, but they also offer a glimpse of the magical and the enchanted.

Berlie Doherty’s Classic Fairy Tales, as the title promises, is a collection of some of the all-time favourite fairy stories including Cinderella, Snow White, Aladdin, Little Red Riding Hood and the Frog Prince. Amongst the twelve tales, there are a couple that I wasn’t so familiar with – The Fire-Bird and The Wild Swans but nevertheless equally enjoyed. Fairy Tales – Berlie Doherty (illustrated by Jane Ray). Twelve fairy tales traced back to their earliest written roots from around the world provides the foundation for this take on stories we all grew up with. Sourcing back to some of the great tale tellers of the last four hundred years, Doherty has sought to find the essence of the original text.

This is a perfect book for younger children who like fairy tales. The stories are well-written and perfect for a 10 minute bedtime read. What makes the book are Jane Ray's illustrations. It's not a book of "blonde/blue-eyed" princesses (and I have a blonde/blue-eyed daughter!), but people of all cultures. I've given this often as 5 or 6-year old birthday present. fairy tales for"all the little children of the world".

This is my favorite fairy tale book, probably of all time. The stories are wonderfully-chosen, fantastically-told, and beautifully-illustrated. I just can't get over the total beauty of this book. I already owned a copy and wanted to get a copy for the girls I teach English to, so I ordered this. I wish the condition had been a little better-described--the dust jacket is missing, the spine is not in great condition (feels super wiggly), and all the pages are water-damaged. Fortunately, the water damage just made the pages kind of crispy and wavy, and all the text and illustrations are intact and beautiful. This is definitely in usable condition, and if I had seen it at a used bookstore for the price I paid, I would still have paid it--however it was described as "good" condition and should really have been described as "acceptable."

This is an exquisite book. A child will want to get lost in the beautiful stories. As a collector of late nineteenth and early twentieth century illustrators for their stylistic beauty, it is thrilling to come across a book where people are just people. Berlie Doherty and Jane Ray are unafraid to deliver childhood magic in it's purist form, before we get our nasty little "them or us" hands on their inborn innocence. Often it is just social laziness. We read to our children the books that were read to us. I don't think anyone would deny that the great fairy tale writers meant their stories for all the children of the world. I don't think we should reject the past. People are products of their time, experiences and influences. But we should celebrate and encourage the good things in the present. There are enough bad ones to worry about. This is a lovely,lovely book. Princes and Princesses come in all colors with eyes of all shapes. There is not a jarring note to be had. I would encourage everyone to buy a copy and get lost in the borderless world of Berlie Doherty and Jane Ray.

The main reason to buy this edition of classic fairy tales is the illustrations, which are gorgeous. In addition, the choice of stories to include, and their re-tellings, make it very suitable for children but also a pleasure for their parents. I love it so much I bought two copies!

As a longtime lover of Fairy tales, I've gotten rather picky about which picture book versions I pick up. And I wanted to buy this book the first time I flicked through it.
This one includes a variety of stories, all well known, from the obvious choices, like Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, to Aladdin, and the Wild Swans. The stories are told well, though without any newness - these are familiar, comfortable stories.
Ah, but it wasn't the tellings of the stories which had me sold on this book. Jane Ray's illustrations are utterly beautiful. Normally, I am a fan of neo-renaissance illustrations - almost realistic, almost three dimensional, and full of elegant landscapes (See Kinuko Craft's work) The illustrations in this book are flat, far more stylized - but they're full of movement and feeling, and they look like they came from the best of medieval manuscripts. The touches of metallic gold only add to this impression. The full colour full page illustrations are also complemented by silhouette illustrations and border images along many other pages. This is inspired art, lovely to look on, and perfectly matches the feeling of fairy tale stories.

This is really the best collection of fairy tales that I've ever seen, and I have seen a lot of them. First, the illustrations are simply exquisite. The heroes and heroines of this book are a seemingly multicultural bunch, and there is a dreamlike quality woven through the art. It's an unusual approach, and it makes this collection so appealing to see dark-haired, brown-eyed princesses. I love it, and so do my daughters. And the stories themselves are well told. It's as if the author sifted through all of the versions of these stories floating around, and put down the very best of them -- the ones that you would pick yourself. I don't like it when I am reading a classic story and parts of it just seem simply wrong. But that is most definitely not the case here. If you are looking for a collection of fairy tales, stop. You've found it. Buy it, and I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

This is a physically beautiful volume, medium sized and easy to hold while you have your arm around another person. The illustrations are unique and creative and accented with gold which adds to the magical ambiance. The pages have colorful decorated borders and the interesting use of silhouettes is striking. The text is true to the original tales while being melodious, fresh and inviting. Don't miss the enchanting picture of Cinderella that goes with this text, "She heard a fluttering as if all the leaves were unfurling at once, and the birds of the tree flew down carrying a silver dress and slippers that glittered like stars." Now isn't that a little better than Bibbity Bobbity Boo?
This book is beautiful. We borrowed a copy from our local library and liked it so well I bought a copy to keep. Some light wear on dust jacket, but otherwise a beautiful copy.
