Product Description

Review

‘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

Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859). Born in Germany, they both studied law before turning to the collection of fairy tales, an endevour which was to occupy them for the rest of their lives.

Format: Paperback
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.

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!

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.

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.

This book is a must for anyone who loves the classic fairy tales. You will be surprised to discover just how many of the well known stories can be credited to the Grimm brothers. The stories are entertaining, sometimes over simplistic, other times particularly dark and gruesome, and not always with a happy ending!

I enjoy it both as an adult and also as a book I can read to my children.

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.

After reading other customer reviews about this book I couldnt wait to have it to hand for I was running out of ideas for the childrens' bedtime story.When you open it up you find hundreds of stories to choose from but unfortunately as I started to read it I was constantly being interupted with questions of "what does 'hast thou' mean daddy ?" and "whats 'ran thither to entreat him' mean ?" and "whats 'hark thee'?".For the book is full of oldy worldy sayings. I found it quite useful to read ahead before reading it at bedtime. It saves lots of questions and time.
