Overview

They are the stories of characters we’ve known since childhood: Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella. But the works originally collected by the Brothers Grimm in the early 1800s are not necessarily the versions told before bedtime. They’re darker and often don’t end very happily—but they're often far more interesting. This elegant edition of Brothers Grimm: 101 Fairy Tales includes all our cherished favorites—"Sleeping Beauty," "Rumpelstiltskin," "Little Red Cap," and many more—in their original versions. Now available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series, Brothers Grimm: 101 Fairy Tales is a must-have addition to the libraries of all classic literature lovers. Many of these stories begin with the familiar refrain of "once upon a time"—but they end with something unexpected and fascinating!

This book is perfect for any fairy tale lover. These are no sappy, happy fairy tales though, these are dark and sometimes sad, but far more interesting than the usual. It has exactly 101 of the brothers grimm fairly tales including snow white, sleeping beauty, rumblestilskin, and many more. This is a must have for book lovers.

This is an awesome book! I have a friend who LOVES fairy tales and has the classic Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, etc. stories in seperate books. I was looking for a birthday gift for this friend and I came across 101 Grimm's Fairy Tales. You can find it pretty much anywhere. I found my copy at Cosco. She later told me that she had never heard of a lot of the stories in the book! There are fairy tales in there that never got made into movies, that people forgot about, and she told me that it was really cool to read them. This was a great book and it's an awesome gift for any occasion! I recommend it for all ages! ~FairyTaleFanatic101
