But it is by no means limited to children. The fairytales are familiar to almost everyone, the simplicity and already associated meaning with the cards helping to make tarot more accessible to a beginner.

Some of the cards make me chuckle, others I find impressive because of the approachable rendering of normally disliked cards. The Devil card, for example, shows a pair of hands controlling a marionette, a puppet on strings. The Death card is Sleeping Beauty.

Other cards, like the Page of Rods, are fairly generic. It shows a herald's trumpet bearing a ribboned invitation, which could belong to any number of tales. The other pages are similar and don't seem associated with any particular story.

I adore the backs of the cards. A lilac, many petalled flower is in a rectangular focus in the centre of the card. Surrounded by a mauve border, then a thicker border of yellow Celtic knot work on a turquoise background. Then, another pale orange border and finally, a thicker purple border. It is hard to describe precisely, but it is restful, appropriate for upright or reversed readings, and very pretty.

The little white booklet is quite thin, just 24 small pages. The deck isn't in dire need of a companion book to expand on the meanings of the cards, but more information on the fairytales and a synopsis of the story would be pleasant. (And there is a eparate book on the Whimsical Tarot, though I have not read it yet.)

I highly recommend the Whimsical Tarot as a child's tarot deck; for people who read for children; or for sensitive souls who aren't keen on confronting images on their tarot cards. The Whimsical Tarot gets the message across without being rude, negative or scary.

I also think it is a good beginners deck, as the fairytales used on each card allow the tarot novice to hang the tarot concepts on a framework they are familiar with. Learning seventy-eight different tarot meanings and how to interpret the tarot symbols can very seem daunting, but the Whimsical Tarot's cards are cute and the scenes already familiar. Hanson-Roberts combined traditional fairytales and tarot make a beautifully presented, sweet, and thoroughly whimsical tarot deck.

Combine shipping is possible.
