" I think this might have been my favorite collection so far - or maybe it was just that I think I've gotten the most ideas for fairytale retellings from this one :) " said.

" Fairy tales were not always made to have happy endings. Now out of print I have this and the Red Fairy book on my bookshelf. I grew up reading these. I can only wish every child gets to read these. " said.

" Just read this recently, as an adult, and have to admit I was disappointed. Still great resource but found the stories redundant and oddly boring... " said.

" The yellow and blue are my favorites. " said.

" I enjoyed reading and finding similarities in modern stories, movies & TV Series (Snow White & The Huntsman 2012, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid). How is it that so many different cultures share the same content: Plot...Characterization...Imagery* " said.

" I still wasn't crazy about it (I really want stories with morals and good points to them, especially if they're for children) but I will say I liked this one a lot better than I liked Blue and Red. Some of the stories were quirky and a bit more fun in this volume. It's almost a 3 star but not quite.. Maybe the next one. " said.

" More Fairy Tales from the 19th century Fairy Tale Master.The Yellow Fairy Book, the 4th in the 12-book series edited by Andrew Lang, takes us once more around the world, visiting various countries and exploring legends and tales. The 48 tales in this book come from Russia, Germany, France, Iceland, Native Americans, and other locations. Although they were adapted to fit the minds of young English children, the essence of the tales remain true. " said.

" I set myself a goal of reading all the Lang color fairy tale collections--so far, blue, red, green, and now, yellow. Pink is next. I remember reading somewhere Robin McKinley had done the same thing and and as she is a writer I admire, I thought doing so was worth emulating. I know I read many of the collections as a child, but that was back when I was in elementary school and I am finding I remember the covers than the stories. It's fun. " said.
