5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS ALIKE, 13 Sept. 2010
By 
This review is from: Grimm's Fairy Tales (Wordsworth's Children's Classics) (Paperback)
This is an excellent collection of fairy tales by the brothers Grimm. It contains 53 fairy tales, very characteristic of Grimm's work, which included more then 200 folk stories and fairy tales. All the best loved fairy tales are in this collection, like "Rapunzel", "Hansel and Grethel", "Little Red-cap", "The Sleeping Beauty", "Snow-white", and "The Frog Prince". However, what I loved most about this book is that apart from the well known tales it includes so many other less known stories and even several versions of the same theme, which are extremely interesting.

The wonderful, fascinating and at times dark fairy tales translated in this edition by Lucy Crane are accompanied by beautiful illustrations by her brother Walter Crane; in fact it includes some of his best work. Sadly there is no mention in the book of the date it was first published, but if I am not mistaken it is something like 1886.

This is a classic and I think no child should grow up without it, having said that I should add that it is a fascinating read for adults as well.
