Overview

Enchanting, brimming with the wonder and magic of Once Upon A Time, the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are the special stories of childhood that stay with us throughout our lives. But most Americans know them only secondhand, in adaptations that greatly reduce the tales' power to touch our emotions and intrigue our imaginations. Now, in the most comprehensive translation to date, here are the classic fairy tales as the Bothers Grimm intended them to be—rich, stark, spiced with humor and violence, resonant with the rhythms of folklore and song. Volume II contains 142 unabridged tales, including such bedtime favorites as "Snow White and Rose Red" and "The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes," as well as 32 little-known tales that the Brothers Grimm omitted during the course of their many revisions. These wonderful tales of life, passion, and make-believe appeal not only to children—who unabashedly love them—but to readers of any age.

A collection of five favorite fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm--"The Frog Prince," "Hanzel and Gretel," "Rapunzel," "The Old Woman in the Forest," and "Brier Rose."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Old-fashioned, often broken typeface and Arthur Rackham's gloriously reproduced original artwork accompany 22 stories in a new edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales, originally published in 1909. A sepia-toned illustration for "Red Riding Hood" shows the cloaked girl meeting the bristly wolf, dwarfed by endlessly tall, bare trees. A caption in "The Bremen Town Musicians" recalls the bygone era: "They came upon a Cat, sitting in the road, with a face as long as a wet week." ( Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Children's Literature
From the lovely Ashenputtel (Cinderella) on the cover to the innocent faces of Hansel and Gretel, it is hard to resist this new edition of twenty-two of the best known Grimm's fairy tales combined with twenty-one of Arthur Rachkham's magnificent color plates and twenty-eight of his marvelous pen-and-ink drawings. As Peter Glassman writes in an Afterward, this edition, based on the rare and unwieldy 1909 edition, seems to contain the best of the writers and the artist in one volume. From the Witch climbing up Rapunsel's very long hair to the homely, beloved Seven Dwarfs attending to beautiful Snowdrop, children and parents will relish Arthur Rackham's portrayals as they read and listen to the enduring tales. Even the cat in "The Bremen Town Musicians" truly has "a face as long as a wet week." The choice of font, with its antique look, may present more of a challenge than today's readers are accustomed to, but it blends well with the enchanting art. Glassman also provides a nice summary of the lives of the brother's Grimm and Arthur Rackham, whose art is as evocative as it no doubt was almost 100 years ago. A Peter Glassman book that is a wonderful addition to all library collections. 2001 (orig. 1909), SeaStar/North-South Books, $19.95. Ages All. Reviewer: Elaine Wick
Library Journal
Is this new edition necessary? Only scholars are likely to persevere through all 32 of the ``previously untranslated'' tales found among the 242 entries. A few, rejected by the Grimms as too French or too literary, have merit; most of the others are slight variants of tales already in the canon or are fragments. There is no analysis or commentary of any individual tales, and though Zipes offers a fine introduction, he himself acknowledges the excellence of Ralph Manheim's translation of the canon (misspelling his name). Since Manheim's work is still in print and available at low cost in paper (Doubleday, 1977), only wealthy scholars, who will appreciate the identification of each tale's human or published source and date of first publication, might insist on Zipes.

    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 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.

    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.

    Takes all the enjoyment out of the stories.
