The Devil's Storybook is a collection of ten short stories told in the style of classic fairytales. Some made me smile, a few made me giggle, and others made me laugh. Although the title may seem unsettling to some, and while Hell is mentioned throughout, the stories were wholesome.

Each one contained a lesson, but rather than extolling the virtues of goodness, it revealed the follies of being vainglorious, idle, a dullard, indifferent, intolerant, and a few other ill traits through the Devil's chicanery. Only a few of the stories were particularly memorable--'The Very Pretty Lady', 'The Harps in Heaven', 'The Imp in the Basket', and 'Perfection'--but they were all a pleasure to read.

A black & white illustration by Babbitt accompanied each story and although they were well done, it may not be enough to sway reluctant readers who prefer picture books, but it's great for those transitioning.

Not only would this be entertaining reading for children (some of the jokes might be lost on younger children), but it could also be a useful tool for establishing a baseline moral code.

Wonderful stories for all ages - thought provoking and funny. I read these aloud to my 7 year old granddaughter and we both loved them. They are all about the ways the Devil disguises himself in various ways and comes up to Earth to try and tempt people - some fall for his tricks, others resist and either way you will have a lot of fun reading these. The Very Pretty Lady is one story I will never forget.

This book brought back many fond childhood memories.

One of my favorite kids books! Clever stories with the devil as a trickster character than a malevolent deity.

Fun! Charming! Just slightly subversive! Recommended highly for kids in that 7 to 12 range.

Cute stories about the devil and how he is aiding those who people who are causing mischief here on earth. It also speaks about choices, and how some people who are tempted by the devil are able to resist and stay on the high road.

Was taking a university storytelling class and were some of the more entertaining stories. My ten year old sister also found these stories to be lighthearted and fun
The Devil's storybook is a touching, funny, and wonderful book. Though it has some language in it like Hell, we think it is an appropriate book for all ages. It's about a Devil who goes into the world, disguised as a fairy godmother, hobo, and towns people. Each wonderful chapter has a new setting for the Devil. Towards the beginning of the book, the Devil goes into the world and meets a beautiful lady. The Devil goes into her cabin. He reminds her of her beauty and asks her if he can take her beauty back to Hell. If you want to know what happened to her, then you'll have to read the Devil's Storybook.
