Meet the Author

The Brothers Grimm (German: Die Brüder Grimm or Die Gebrüder Grimm), Jacob Grimm (January 4, 1785 – September 20, 1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (February 24, 1786 – December 16, 1859), were German academics, linguists and cultural researchers who collected the old folk tales and published several collections of folk- and fairy tales, called Grimm's Fairy Tales, which subsequently became very popular. Jacob also carried out academic work in philology, related to how the sounds in words shift over time (Grimm's law), he was also a lawyer, his legal work, German Legal Antiquities (Deutsche Rechtsaltertümer) in 1828, made him a valuable testimony about the origin and meaning of many legal historical idioms and symbolism. They can be counted along with Karl Lachmann and Georg Friedrich Benecke as founding fathers of Germanic philology and German studies. Both brothers began to compile the first German dictionary. Jacob, who was able to complete the letters A, B, C and E, died on September 20, 1863 before completing the processing of the article with the letter F and "functional".
The first collection of fairy tales Children's and Household Tales ((Kinder-und Hausmärchen) was published in 1812 and it contained more than 200 fairy tales. Some collections of the stories had already been written by Charles Perrault in the late 1600s, with somewhat unexpected versions. In the original published forms, the Grimm's fairy tales were very dark and violent, in contrast to the lighter, modern "Disney versions" of those tales.
They are among the best-known story tellers of European folk tales, and their work popularized such stories as "Cinderella" (Aschenputtel), "The Frog Prince" (Der Froschkönig), "Hansel and Gretel" (Hänsel und Gretel), "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstiltskin" (Rumpelstilzchen), "Sleeping Beauty" (Dornröschen), and "Snow White" (Schneewittchen).

When I was looking at reviews to buy this book, people said it had the worst format and had many spelling errors. I decided to get the free sample and see if what they said was true. I found out that the book did not have any spelling errors that I could see, the only problem I had was that it doesn't flow as well as other books but come on! These stories are from how many years ago? This is a great read for people who like farie tales or want to know more of the Grimm tales than the ones everybody knows. If you don't believe me just get the sample!

I really like Grimm's because they're an interesting take on fairy tales. I like the Dover version because it's small and I can easily carry it to class. The only thing I have a problem with is the print, it's a little small. Other than that, I like it.

Really good fairy tales! The Brothers Grimm are good writers. It would be cool if some of the fairy tales were real life.

this was a great book to read as a class and do exercises and questions at the end of each story in the book. Doing those exercises with the book help you understand how to analize things.

The Brothers Grimm have a mastery of the written art and a plethora of their works are demonstrated in this extensive book full of their many stories. None of the stories are very long, which allows the reader to come and go as he pleases without worrying about forgetting key details. Although these stories are short, many maintain a sense of humor that is bordering cynical. With various stories that all have one common factor that the happy ending might not happen, these series of books will keep you on your toes as well ass amuse and entertain you.

There are no pictures; it's a no-frills book. The formatting is odd. The stories themselves are awesome. It's great for reading aloud. My 8 & 11 yr olds love to hear them.

Barnes and Noble, please stop putting new covers on the leatherbound classics that you have already released. It is a waste since there are so many other books you could release in this form. Here are some titles I would love to see. The Brothers Karamazov The Lord of the Rings The Hobbit Middlemarch 1984 and Animal Farm The Chronicles of Prydain
