Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Thirty beloved tales by the Brothers Grimm are collected in one fine anthology. For those only familiar with Disney variations, it provides the opportunity to read and hear the tales as written long ago. The stories are replete with stepsisters cutting off their toes and heels, a lazy girl covered with tar for the rest of her life, a blinded Prince roaming the land for years in search of his Rapunzel, and more than one story where an evil woman is punished by nailing her inside a barrel and rolled down a hill to the river. There are no dancing mice and fairy godmother, the dwarfs are noble miners, and Puss in Boots is not a caricature but a clever cat. Instead there are gentle maidens, clever children, wicked queens, lazy lads, and cunning animals. The more recognizable tales of Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, and Cinderella are all here along with the lesser known stories such as Jorinda and Jorindel, The Goose Girl, Snow White and Rose Red, The Star Money, and Mother Holle. Each fairy tale is accompanied by a warm watercolor with small silhouettes and black and white sketches scattered throughout. The collection is perfect for gift giving or to add to a personal collection. For school and public libraries it is essential to have at least one collection of these timeless tales and because of the volume of stories, this fits the bill. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey; Ages 7 to 12.
