This audiobook contains a collection of the Brothers Grimm’s extensive collection of stories which included Tom Thumb, Cinderella and Snow White.
While very sweet to listen and reminisce I found many of the tales sounded very alike and similar themes emerged within many of the stories. From listening using adult ears and knowledge I can hear that they are old fashioned with dated ideas; for example there is a clear masochism which runs through many stories. These are things I would not have picked up on as a child.
The narration of the book was good, Joanna Daniel sounded like various readers from Jackanory, with just the right amount of condensation and jolliness which will engage a child while not alienating.
Overall these are sweet bite size stories which are the right amount for children with limited attention spans.
These were comical. I was a little disappointed, I thought they would resemble the fairytales of my youth put only a few of them did.

The narrator couldn't have done a better job! Enjoyed entirely from start to finish, bravo!
