Equal to other B&N leather-bound editions, this collection is a nice complement to The Snow Queen and Other Winter Tales, Fairy Tales from Around the World, and Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales. This edition is not a Disney tie-in and is not promoted as such. If you're interested in reading the literary origins of modern fairy tale re-imaginings, this is the perfect book to give yourself or others. Very good value for a stylized edition that can be read comfortably.
