Meet the Author

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, aka the Brothers Grimm, set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore. Once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, however, they began softening some of the harsher aspects to make them more suitable for children. A cornerstone of Western culture since the early 1800s, Grimm’s Fairy Tales is now one of the world’s most beloved books.

This book is not only complete but very aesthetically pleasing. It is rare to find a book that has a cover and binding that shows so much craftsmanship. The ribbon bookmark is a great throwback to the old binded books. Definitely a great buy. Totally a collector's item as well as a great read.

This complete collection is beautifully bound. The book is illustrated, just not on every single page. They are scattered every few pages. If you love classic fairy tales this is definitely worth having.

These tales are not Disneyfied. These tales are intended for adult audiences. Not all are fairy tales. Some are Christian tales , while other tales are also included. Some are sad, some are strange, and punishments of the bad guys can be rather severe. At least on tale. is a bit disturbing. But an interesting read none the less. Red Ridinghood, Hansel and Gretal, Sleepybeauty, and of course Snow White are among the tales collected by The Grimm Brothers.

Just a bit of warning,. Like Hans Christian Andersen Brothers Grimm's are NOT Disneyfied and may not be PC nor all stories fine for little ones but still recommend for the collection of stories.

I am quite pleased with this book, the leather binding is BEAUTIFUL and the stories engaging. However one of my pages has ink smeared across it which I was very disappointed about.

Unable to really say anything since they are Christmas presents and unable to open them. Very pleased with the outward appearance of all the books I have ordered from Barnes & Noble.
