5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Corker, 27 Oct. 2011
This review is from: The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (Hardcover)
Many modern readers believe that the Brothers Grimm were all sweetness and light, usually as their tales have been bought and translated to the modern medium of film by companies like Disney, for those of us raised with the older material, you'll more than be aware of the darker and, at times, quite scary tales that we were raised on that contained hidden morals and messages for the reader to learn.

This title by Taschen is a wonderful new translation of the original text (now celebrating its second centenary) by Matthew Price, picked up with artwork from some of the original stories alongside some modern masters to create a truly unique experience. It's dark, its foreboding but most of all it's a book that children will love (after all who doesn't like a scare just before lights out? Add to this some insight into the stories for the adult reader and this is a book that will beloved for generations. An absolute cracker of a title that will appeal to the child in all of us and a book that I feel will make one of the most amazing gifts this Christmas. Magic.

The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm. This book is not only for children but also adults. It is a beautifully produced book; a joy to hold, look at and own. Buy one!
