Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For those who love the classic fairy tales, Neil Philip presents retellings of twenty by the Brothers Grimm. Among those most readily recognized are "Rapunzel," "Rumpelstilskin" and "Snow White." They are true to the original versions, for example, Rapunzel and her husband are left to wander separately in the desert for many years until they are reunited and her tears bring back the sight he lost at the hands of the wicked witch. Among the tales that may not be as well known are "Hans the Hedgehog," "Manyfurs" and "The Golden Key." Hans the Hedgehog tells of a boy who is only half human due to an enchantment and eventually, through the goodness of a righteous king and his daughter, achieves happiness. The Introduction provides some wonderful information about Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm and the sources of the stories. Isabelle Brent provides her trademark gilded illustrations, elegant in color and detail. This is a collection that is rich in text and equally rich in illustration.
School Library Journal
Gr 3 6Do libraries really need another edition of Grimm tales? In this case, the answer is a resounding "YES!" Philip retells 17 complete stories, two humorous vignettes, and one repetitive cumulative chant with internal rhyme. The stories are mainly familiar ones, such as "The Fisherman and His Wife," "The Musicians of Bremen," and "Rapunzel," but some lesser-known tales, such as "The Gold Children" and "The Knapsack, the Hat, and the Horn," are included. To sample the cleverness and accessible language of these sharp-witted retellings, just try "The Three Lazybones." Barely one page, this brief tale can be connected to many other stories here and elsewhere. At the same time, it is related to contemporary parodies such as Jon Scieszka's The Stinky Cheese Man (Viking, 1992). This valuable collection is superbly enhanced by the unusual, eye-catching illustrations, luxuriously painted in the manner of medieval illuminations and decorated with gold-leaf accents. With one or two full-page pictures per story, this book could easily become a family keepsake. Of course, library budgets are always a consideration, and the acquisition of this item depends upon the size, depth, and use of the folklore section. But it might be wise to jettison a well-loved and well-worn copy of the Grimms' tales and replace it with this one. It is sure to spark the interest and enthusiasm of a new generation of folk and fairy-tale aficionados.Martha Rosen, Edgewood School, Scarsdale, NY
