About Brothers Grimm

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore and the hard life of European peasants was reflected in the tales they discovered. However, once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, they began softening some of the harsher aspects to make them more suitable for children.

It is bound beautifully and with great quality and the illustrations are superb. It is better in person than shown in the picture, well worth the money.show more

I have always wanted a book like this. Its beautiful, well bonded, with lovely illustrations and the paper isn't too thin. the only bad part is that one end got a bit squished in the mail, but it's nothing that can't be fixed.show more
