Obviously nothing near as spectacular as the HP books, I found the fairy tales very interesting, and Albus Dumbledore's commentary even more so. The vague references to book burning/banning make me wonder if Jo was intentionally (...really, there's very little doubt in my mind that she wasn't) mocking the likes of Laura Mallory. If so, good for her ;) I loved Jo's illustrations and I really would like to know why she didn't illustrate the HP books. Did anyone else catch the sign of the deathly hallows on the fountain? I also liked the footnotes, particularly the one explaining more about Nearly Headless Nick. I really can't wait to read this book to my kids as bedtime stories!
