"Needs prescreening for younger children"
The stories are the old familiar tales; but in general, they're told in the harshest way possible, which may well be as they were told originally. I prefer the scaled down versions for very young children. Even my eight-year-old grandson was bothered by the parents' actions in the Hansel and Gretel story. He's heard the story many times in other versions including a DVD performance of the opera; but this version actually gave more time to the parents' efforts to abandon their children than to the witch in the forest. We are enjoying some of the stories, but I definitely wouldn't buy it again or encourage anyone else to buy it, unless you're interested in the unabridged versions of classics. I was looking for bedtime stories - my mistake.
