Description

Once upon a time, two brothers wished to preserve their German folklore in a collection of tales that they believed had been handed down for generations. When they began in 1812 they had just 86 stories that rather harshly reflected the difficult life of European peasantry. Subsequent editions would grow to hold over 200 tales. As time passed, the Brothers Grimm found that their collection of fairy tales, with all of its royalty, magical creatures, and brave adventures, entranced those who read them. This compilation of fairy tales which includes the complete canon of over 200 tales has become a beloved set of classical stories the world over. Presented here in this edition is the faithful translation of Margaret Hunt.

    This is a very good book I loved it even though it took me a while to read when I saw the end I wished there was more

    Being German I am very familiar with all these tales, but had a hard time to tell them to my English speaking partner, who did not know most of them. This wonderful complete collection we used to read the tales to each other every night for quite some time - having fairy dreams afterwards ... :-)
