Cheap and cheerful, and more attractively presented than the Ladybird versions, best sums up these four 'First Fairytales', hardbacks aimed mainly at parents with preschoolers. My advice as always with traditional tales is, if you don't like the choice of words in the text, substitute your own; and though the pictures are not to my taste - Paul Galdone's illustrations for these stories have yet to be bettered for the very young in my view - the rather chocolate-box style adopted here may appeal to some youngsters.
