Your standard folk tale. The kids love it and they have fun having it read to them during story time just before bed.

Great little book.

We have all of Galdone's Folk Tale Classic books, and this one is a favorite. I'm not sure of the recommended ages for this book, but other buyers might like to know that it has some more thoughtful ideas than a young child might be aware of, which could be a good thing when you explain it to them for example higher vocabulary and sentence structures and ideas such as "servant." It is one of the top choices everyday with my 1 and 1/2 year old and 3 year old. Beautiful book!
