Hey guys,

Okay, so when I was a kid, my grandmother gave my sister and I a book of fairy tales. This book, I remember, was massive, into the hundreds of pages. Every story was illustrated, it was paperback, and contained stories of Grimm, Perrault, Wilde, and Anderson. All stories were in their original form, I remember the Little Mermaid being threatened with the idea of being turned into sea foam. One of the first stories in the book was Anderson's, "Emperor's New Clothes", and it also contained Aladdin. I remember the cover having the title in the middle, with various detailed creatures and characters around it, esp a giant up top leaning over the text. I can tell you it was old, not at all an edition of the 90s, but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it. If there's anyway you can help me find this book, I'd be most grateful. Thanks!

Give a try, by using the "Search" in the LT website, and type "Fairy Tales" in the "Works" box. Maybe, a
list of book titles will jolt your memory.

You can also ask in the group Name that Book.

It would also be helpful to have a publication date range. (I.e., you say you had it when you were a kid--when was that?)

I had it in the late 90s, but I know the book was much older than that so I can't offer a publication date range. I honestly don't remember.
