    "I loved this book and thin it's a great choice for dual language. Having each language on opposing pages made it an even more interesting read. I liked being able to compare the two page versions rather than have the stories in separate sections. "

    "A classic story told here in both English and German, allowing the reader to read the German and the translation side by side, giving you a fun way to study German. The story is an obvious classic, and the translation is fantastic, allowing the reader to think along in German as they read the English portions."

    "As someone trying to learn Italian, this book is wonderful! The stories are long enough to be enjoyable but not too long to be overwhelming. I like the questions at the end of each chapter that ensure you are understanding at least the basics of the stories. When I finish this I will definitely be buying the followup book. "

    "This book contained some really good short stories that I might not have read if they had only been in English or in Spanish. The dual language format was the first thing that caught my attention as I have been wanting to improve my reading ability in Spanish. The dual format greatly increased my reading ability and comprehension. Also, the stories were pure enjoyment."

    "This may work for you if you are trying to grasp some words in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese. For me, it was too overwhelming. I think for picking up some useful words in Korean, next time I will look for a book that is just Korean and English."
