The book was illustrated by Gordon Laite. I unearthed it and looked through it again last night. I wonder if I would still like the illustrations without the nostalgia. In any case, the book is called "Five Fairy Tales" and was published by Golden Press as a "Big Golden Book." The copyrights were for 1959, 1960, 1962. I didn't see an author listed, but I wasn't looking closely. Hope this is helpful to you.
