    It's Grimm

    This edition seems consistent in language and style with the old edition I grew up with and is as good to read as ever. It is translated in the archaic and poetic style of English that relates very closely to the German idiom. I do wish that the publishers of this ebook had included a frontispiece with information on edition, translation and whatnot to give me more confidence that it is the real thing.

    Recommended for all ages -- stimulates the imagination!

    I loved these fairy tales as a child, and can still remember most of them. My parents gave me an entire set of books called "Junior Classics" which included Grimm's Fairy Tales, Aesop's Fables, Hans Christian Anderson, and so many, many other stories! Wish I still had those books, but alas, my sisters also discovered them, and...well...you can guess what eventually happened to them!!!

    Needless to say, I am so very happy to have this complete collection, which I will now read to my great-grandchildren, with great pleasure!
