Product Description


'Among the few indispensable, common-property books upon which Western culture can be founded ... it is hardly too much to say that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance.' - W.H. Auden

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - for old & young alike 8 Nov 2001
By A Customer
You don't have to be a child to enjoy this book - the stories are funny, interesting and relevent. The characters & situations they portray can be applied to everyday people & situations - thus the sign of great storytelling - these stories are timeless.
A great book to pick up for a quick read - some of the stories are only one page long.
Definitely a book to have your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everlasting 6 Nov 2003
I knew some of Grimms fairy tales but had no idea they had written so many - and here they all are! If you are hoping for the sanitised Disney version you'll be disappointed - these are the real stories and there's a whole HEAP of them. Don't just buy it for your kids - buy it for yourself, its Fabulous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best edition, excellent translation! 25 Aug 2013
By Thomas
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Uncensored, unabridged, excellent collection and translated well enough - one of the rare editions of The Brothers Grimm which isn't contorted as most lightly copyrighted works are. Highly recommend after seeking the right version to fulfill my expectations in terms of authenticity and quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this! 26 Jun 2013
By poppy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of reading, and after receiving this book, I just couldn't put it down.
It came within 2 days, after is was dispatched.
The stories are not written in modern day english, but I guess it makes it that tiny bit more special.
Would definitely recommend to others to purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars confused 9 Mar 2012
By kirsty
The book I ordered was completely different from the book recieved, everything from the front cover to the internal preview completely different to what was ordered - the one that arrived is aimed at much younger audience than the advertised product.
