    This is a book I remember reading in sixth grade and always wanted to find a copy. I finally did, and it also ended up being a signed copy! While I do believe I enjoyed this more when I was younger, I still overall enjoyed this book. There are five Vietnamese fairy tales in this book so I'm going to review each one and then my overall thoughts and rating:

    Bought the book for a grandson to be used in his class assignment Children's tales are sometimes similar in different countries.

    I like mythology. I like fairy tales. I like Disney movies. I like anti-princess books even though I feel like the term is kind of aggressive and confrontational. That said, it's easy to forget, with sanitized Disney/picture book versions aplenty, how very creepy some fairy tales can be.

    These five stories have so many similarities to European tales it is uncanny. They are well told and different enough to make you think about the cultural differences. I think the book is great for any reader aged 7 and up, especially anyone interested in reading some Asian, or specifically Vietnamese, folktales. And the few illustrations are intricate and very well done.

    This is a great book. Both me and my 8 year old son really enjoyed it.

    This is a very enjoyable storybook. The most interesting thing I discovered about it, is the traditional stories that I grew up with, being told in a Vietnamese setting. Very enjoyable, and I look forward to reading to my young girls these stories they know so well in another format!
