More About This Book

Overview

With the words “Once upon a time,” the Brothers Grimm transport readers to a timeless realm where witches, giants, princesses, kings, fairies, goblins, and wizards fall in love, try to get rich, quarrel with their neighbors, and have magical adventures of all kinds—and in the process reveal essential truths about human nature.

 

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore—and the hard life of European peasants was reflected in the tales they discovered. However, once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, 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 beloved the world over. This collection of more than 120 of the Grimms’ best tales includes such classics as “Cinderella,” “Snow White,” “Hansel and Grethel,” “Rapunzel,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” and “The Frog Prince,” as well as others that are no less delightful.

 

This new edition features beautiful full-color illustrations throughout to provide even more magic to these beloved tales.

    "Grimm's Tales" Complete Classic Collection

    A mixture of Poe and Aesop's fable may best describe the fantasies featured in the pages of this tome as they entail morality tales many of which do not shy away from bloodshed and gore that have become accepted as the norm courtesy of the Disney studios catering to political correctness and providing baby food for the masses. If this were not enjoyable enough, all these tales are collected in a single volume. At times, however, it is this very inclusiveness that works against itself as some of the stories are very much the same thus becoming repetitive while, in other instances, abrupt turns in the story line with a suddenness that proves disconcerting and confusing. This last is overshadowed by the aforementioned virtues making both the hardcover edition with a dust jacket containing liner notes (ISBN-13: 978-0-088029-519-2) and the leather bound volume (ISBN-13: 978-0-7607-0335-9) lacking the dust jacket and liner notes but, instead, having gilded pages and attached gold ribbon book mark both excellent additions to anyone's library.

    poorly translated

    This book does indeed contain the same, good old stories, but they are translated into a literal, flat english that leaves all the richness and shadow out of the stories. Highly disappointing and hardly worth reading when there are so many better versions of this collection.

    Gorgeous Book

    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.

    Great Read on the classics

    I have been wanting to read the complete works of the "real" fairy tale stories. This is a fantastic reading of all the Grimm's classics. Dark, gory and sometimes funny tales. The true story of Cinderella is by far the best! The stepsisters scheming and lengths they go through to get the shoe to fit are how we see the darker side of humanity.
    Not recommended for elementary school aged children.

    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.

    Grimm's Fairey Tales never grow old

    I don't remember reading these tales as a child but now that I have decided to give it a try I am enchanted and amazed at the creativity and imagination of these stories. Each one is just long enough to be a before bedtime read. I guess this was the entertainment in the days prior to TV and Radio. Tales of fantasy and magic. And so much of it found in our lierature of today. I love it.

    I can't wait to read this. I bought the boxed set with this, Edgar Allan Poe, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Sherlock Holmes and Illiad & Oddessy last week and I am definitely starting with Grimm. My boyfriend has been reading the Alice & Wonderland versions for a couple months now and told me about it's dark secrets. I have always been a Disney fan but I honestly wish they would have thrown in the darker sides just to make our inner demons smile. I'm excited!! I have a different series I'm reading right now but the moment I'm done....... <3
