I have been buying these beautiful books for a bout a year now and i can tell you that they are so amazing! The detailing in them is so good and the creativity of the storys are great. These books a just a big nostalgic step back in time and every second of reading is just perfect!
The first one is the one i bought first. Grimms complete fairytale is a beautiful book with gold detailing,a dark green background and a nice illustration of rapunzel tangled in her own hair. It is just a lovely book and looks so nice to look at and looks so pretty on my bookshelf!
The book contains the original storys of the grimm brothers and even a little introduction about who the brothers are, how they became interested in writing and how they collected all the storys throughout there life. This book contains stories most people have heard and know like Cinderella, Rapunzel and Hanzel and Gretel. But these storys dont always follow the sweet disney stories most of us grew up with they sometimes have a very unpleasant ending, but that does lead to an amazing story and can really show you how not everyones story ends with a happily ever after.
This next book is Classic Fairy Tales written by Hans Ahristians Andersen. It is just as beautiful with its golden details and purple background, and that cute litte girl holding a flower standing atop a toadstool.
This book contains some very well know storys aswell which include, The Little Mermaid (illustration above), Thumbelina and The Ugly Duckling. but like the grimm brothers stories they can also end in tragedy. But these well-written storys can provide you with good stories to entertain you for hours.
This is Aesop’s Illustrated Fables. This is yet another beautiful book with golden detail and a bluish, green background. This book contains short stories and amazing illustrations, most of these stories i have never really heard of but it is still a good read and all the stories contain a little message at the bottom revealing the hidden message in all the stories which i think is very creative.

I purchased all these books myself from the book depository, they were all quite afordable dispite the amazing quality. I love these books and hope they will last for years so i can pass them down my family line. Do you have these books or something similar? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below 🙂 xo
