As long as there are the young and the young at heart, the timeless tales of the Brothers Grimm will endure. Likewise, as long as there are boys and girls with a sense of fantasy and fun, the characters of Walt Disney will occupy a special place in their memories. This collection is a nostalgic treasure, reminding us of some of the most exiting pleasures of childhood. We recall the tales themselves , read by us or read to us by parents or grandparents. We are reminded, too, of darkened theaters with giant silver screens where the antics of the Disney character enthralled and delighted us.
