Product description

With the words "Once upon a time", the Brothers Grimm transport readers to a timeless realm where witches, giants, princesses, kings, fairies, goblins and wizards fall in love, try to get rich, quarrel with their neighbours and have magical adventures of all kinds and in the process reveal essential truths about human nature. A cornerstone of Western culture since the early 1800s, "Grimm's Fairy Tales" is now beloved the world over. This collection of more than 120 of the Grimm's best tales includes such classics as "Cinderella", "Snow White", "Hansel and Grethel", "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstiltskin", "Little Red Riding Hood" and "The Frog Prince", as well as others that are no less delightful. This new edition features beautiful full-colour illustrations throughout to provide even more magic to these beloved tales.

Author information

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.

This is a beautiful edition with great illustrations (specially the first one) and gorgeous design. Lovely, just lovely.

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.
