Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Spring)
These four books appear in uniform paper-over-board editions. Galdone was a refreshingly modest illustrator: his retellings are straightforward and his unassumingly loose-lined, color-separated pictures provide just enough embellishment. Plenty of white space gives the stories all the room they need. [Review covers these Folk Tale Classic titles: Cinderella, Henny Penny, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rumpelstiltskin.]

Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 1990 May #1)
Of this stylish retelling, PW said, ``it's like hearing a brand-new story in Galdone's words and vivid scenes.'' Ages 3-6. (Apr.) Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.
