Book Description

27 Sep 2007 Penguin Popular Classics
Merry, dark or magical, these classic tales never fail to inspire and enthral. From the land of fantastical castles, vast lakes and deep forests, the Brothers Grimm collected a treasury of entrancing folk and fairy stories full of giants and dwarfs, witches and princesses, magic beasts and cunning boys. From favourites such as The Frog-Prince and Hansel and Gretel to the delights of Ashputtel or Old Sultan, all are vivid with timeless mystery.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much missing from this edition. 10 April 2008
By J. Scott TOP 500 REVIEWER
Like 'Frenchstudent' and 'Big bad wolf', I purchased this because of the Red Riding Hood cover, and was equally disappointed to find that this story wasn't included.

In fact, this edition has only one thing going for it - namely, that it's so very cheap. But really, prospective purchasers should do themselves a favour and consider spending just a few more pounds - this will get them a *complete* edition of the stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange Omissions 5 Dec 2006
Yes of course, this book is full of the Grimms' wonderous tales, but I found it peculiar that the illustration chosen for the front cover would be of Little Red Riding Hood, when she is not even one of the stories featured in the book. Neither that, nor Cinderella, cited on the introductory first page, are included, which I found strange. And slightly annoying, since I wanted to study the Red Riding Hood story!
