Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Early in the nineteenth century, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm compiled a collection of stories to preserve the folklore of their native Germany. Forty-three of them and#8212; fairy tales, some deliciously dark, that have bewitched readers for generations and#8212; are gathered here. Translated into more than 150 languages, these well-loved narratives brim with fearless heroes, humble and hardworking heroines, and treacherous villains, exploring themes of innocence, curiosity, and revenge.

Rich in detail, lyrical in phrase, these masterful translations by Margaret Hunt capture the flavor of the original Grimm tales. Here are classics such as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Grethel," "Thumbling," "Cinderella," "The Bremen Town-Musicians," "The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids," "The Fisherman and His Wife," and "Little Snow-White." These cherished fables, created from centuries'-old oral tradition, await rediscovery by children and adults alike.

Synopsis:

Compact and affordable, this collection of 43 deliciously dark fairy and folk tales features "Rapunzel," "Hand#228;nsel and Grethel," "Rumpelstiltskin," "Cinderella," "Little Snow-White," "The Golden Goose," "The Frog-King, or Iron Henry," and "The Twelve Brothers."
