I like the illustrations and font, the rendition is ok. As far as age appropriateness, I think a better job could be done, but you judge for yourself.
The Cunning Little Vixen:
"The fox and the vixen stayed warm and hidden in their home all through the winter. In the spring Sharp-ears said to Golden-mane, "How I love you, my darling Golden-mane! I always knew we were made for one another, and that's lucky, beacause very soon, we will be the parents of a litter of beautiful cubs." "What wonderful news!" said Golden-mane. We must be marries at once...."
Turandot:
"I am avenging the spirit of my ancestress, Princes Lou Ling", she said. "...a foreign king came to her in this place, ravished her and murdered her most horribly. To honor her memory, I have vowed never to let any man touch me."

This book retells eight well-known opera stories. Most are of the fairy tale variety, while a couple, (Carmen, Aida) are more mature in nature. Generally, the stories are told well, in a way that would be understandable to children. Some of the more complicated stories are told in the first-person and I think these are the best stories in the book. I wasn't completely thrilled with the illustrations but I did like very much the small picutres that showed and described characters' costumes. This added an interesting touch to the book.
