Most Helpful Customer Reviews

"The Grey Fairy Book" is a marvelous collection of tales from Eastern Europe, Africa, and Islamic countries. Once again we get to visit, the horrible, fantastic world of the fairy tale, complete with amazing drawings. These are the *unknown* tales that Disney ignores, but are beautiful in their own right. This is a must have for any collector or anyone who still needs their fairy tales. Who can outgrow these things?
All of the 12 Andrew Lang Color Fairy Tale Books are excellent sources of fairy and folk tales from around the world. Although they include many of the more familiar tales from Grimm, Perreault, and Andersson, they also contain stories from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, as well as from native tribes of North, Central and South America. The diversity of tales provide a window into the originating cultures. I obtained the Dover editions in 1972 and have enjoyed reading and re-reading them for the last quarter century.
This book of tales hails from Greece, Africa and Lithuania. They are frightful as fairytales are intended to be. The Donkey Skin and 3 Sons from Hali raise bumps on the skin. Great.
