This story Jumped around a lot; I did like the illustrations. But I'm tired of the same old sex role stereotypes. I guess I shouldn't have expected something else. I hope someone reworks this and many other tales in the future; I'm sure it's do-able. Give the handsome prince and the diminutive princess some new roles and descriptors. My 3 year old grandchildren are already grabbing onto these stereotypes. The grand-daughter stated that only boys were fire"men" and police"men" I had to show her women in action.

With so many retellings of the story I must say I enjoyed this one. It was more classic, imaginative, and had amazing illustrations along the way. Pictures well balanced with words. Wonderful to read through the holiday season.
