      Pretty good for the most part. But for the most part, the stories are derivatives of or origins of the fairy tales most people are familiar with. There are tiny differences, which was pretty cool, but over all, the same stories.

      I was thrilled to receive a free copy of Joseph Jacobs’ More English Fairy Tales, published recently by Pook Press, from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers programme. This book is a facsimile of the original 1894 edition of the text, complete with gorgeous illustrations from John D. Batten. It comprises an impressive eighty seven fairy tales, many of which are variations on better known versions of the stories, such as the many different versions of Cinderella which appear, and all of which are [...]

      This Pook edition leaves me with mixed feelings. Why pay $23 for a paperback worth at most $7.95 new?

One of the more important folklori [...]

      So, I know I enjoyed this more than the first collection of English fairy tales by Jacobs, and while listening I was thinking that the stories felt more varied than the original. Certainly there's repeats of Grimm and Andersen tales, but not much of repeats within the book itself. Sadly, I only recall one story: The King of Cats, and that's largely due to my associating it with a Ghibli movie.This will certainly be enjoyed by any child who likes fairy tales, though they may complain that things [...]

      A solid book of fairy tales. Some are good, some are bad, some depressing, and some just weird. About what I expected, really.

      Reviewed together with the earlier book in English Fairy Tales.
