Overview

Murder, kidnapping, cruel and unusual punishment, violent revengethese are not the bedtime stories mummy used to read. Newly reissued with a fresh cover, Grimm's Grimmest presents nineteen original, unsanitized, wholly unholy tales as they were first collected by the Brothers Grimm circa 1822all fiendishly illustrated. The tales harken back to a time when travelers risked roasting or worse, and bad manners yielded frightful consequences. An insightful introduction makes sense of the mayhem, shedding light on how the Grimm brothers went from macabre to mainstream in fairly short order. From the true horror of Aschenputtel (the original Cinderella story) to Rapunzel's dark secret, Grimm's Grimmest features the authentic stories born long ago in the land of the Black Forest, at a time when fairy tales never ended happily ever after.

A collection of nineteen of the darkest stories from the Grimm collection of German fairy tales, containing elements that have frequently been removed in other versions.

    Better than you think.

    I enjoyed this book. I have always been interested in children's stories and I found this to be quite interesting. I enjoyed learn where the stories of Cinderella and Rapunzel came from. If you like reading stories that are somewhat graphic then I would recomend this book.

    Great.

    This book was good, I borrowed it from a friend, and I need to know the name of that one story about the egg and the key. Email me if you know.
