Meet the Author

The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1759) were German authors and linguists who collected folklore, published as the immensely popular GRIMM'S FAIRY TALES in the mid-19th century. Jacob Grimm was also a gifted linguist responsible for the formulation of Grimm's Law, which describes how the sounds in words shift over time in several European languages.

    The other reviews are wrong...

    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!

    Great book

    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 Cool!!

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

    Good Book

    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.

    more from this reviewer

    Random isn't always a bad thing!

    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.

    Great stories

    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.

    Don't Bother

    Very difficult to read.
    No breaks between chapters, LOTS of typos.
    Takes all the enjoyment out of the stories.
