Overview

Renowned children’s book author Wanda Gág presents these classic Grimm tales, accompanied by whimsical illustrations. Drawing on her peasant heritage and childlike sense of wonder, Gág translated the fairy tales in a uniquely American vernacular tongue. More Tales from Grimm contains over thirty more, including “The Golden Key,” “The Seven Swabians,” and “The Wolf and the Fox,” as well as almost one hundred illustrations. No other editions of Grimm’s fairy tales for children can match Gág’s richness of prose and the humor, beauty, and sheer magic of her pictorial interpretation. Best known for her Newbery Honor winner Millions of Cats, Wanda Gág (1893–1946) was a pioneer in children’s book writing, integrating text and illustration. Born in New Ulm, Minnesota, she rose to international acclaim. In recognition of her artistry, she was posthumously awarded the 1958 Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for Millions of Cats and the 1977 Kerlan Award for her body of work.

Thirty-two tales including "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and "The Showmaker and the Elves."

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amie Rose Rotruck
Nowadays, most modern versions of the Grimm Brother's tales are found in either glossy picture books for children or thick books for scholars. This reissue of Wanda Gag's contribution to the Grimm Legacy is a breath of fresh air. Filled with lesser known tales from Grimm (certainly not well-known in today's world), Gag creates easily accessible versions of the originals. She does not water-down the tales for children (other than content that even now might be deemed inappropriate), but at the same time brings them to life by her descriptions, settings, and conversations between the characters. She also lends her considerable talent as an illustrator to the tales, making this an ideal collection for the child enchanted with Grimm's tales, but bored with Snow White and Rapunzel. Also a good resource for storytellers, librarians, and teachers.
