The complete Grimm's fairy tales

by:Grimm, Jacob, 1785-1863

For almost two centuries, the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way children -- and adults -- learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (a.k.a. Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of more than 200 enchanting characters included here. Lyrically translated and beautifully illustrated, the tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.
