"Grimms’ Fairy Tales are among the few indispensable common-property books upon which Western literature can be said to be founded… It is hardly too much to say that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance.” -W. H. Auden,
The New York Times
Two hundred years ago, brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm traveled around Europe collecting fairy tales that had been told around family hearth-fires for centuries before them. This volume includes the original stories of Snow White, Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, the Brave Little Tailor, Little Red Riding Hood, the Bremen Town Musicians, Sleeping Beauty, the Elves and the Shoemaker, and many more. Readers will be surprised to learn how the fairy tales changed when they were made into Disney princess movies…
