Synopsis:

The Brothers Grimm The Grimm brothers were early 19th century writers best known for their fairy tales coming from Scandinavian, Icelandic and Germanic origins. By 1807 there was a growing interest in German folk tales. The Grim brothers were academics who invited friends to their home and asked them to relate stories they had heard. They soon published their first collection of tales and from there several more volumes followed. Included in this collection are Hansel and Gretel, Briar Rose, The Fisherman and His Wife, Rapunzel, The Frog Prince, Little Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltshin, Tom Thumb and many more. These stories are a delight to read and will rekindle up many childhood memories as they are reread.

About the Author

Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786- 1859) spent most of their childhood exploring the forests and old castles surrounding their home. Though both brothers worked as librarians and academics, their real love was collecting folk tales of their native Germany. Cornelia Funke (introducer) is the award-winning author of the Inkheart trilogy.
