Overview

The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales by Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm

Originally titled Children’s and Household Tales, The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales contains the essential bedtime stories for children worldwide for the better part of two centuries. The Brothers Grimm, Jacob and Wilhelm, were German linguists and cultural researchers who gathered legendary folklore and aimed to collect the stories exactly as they heard them. 2012 marked the 200th anniversary of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and what better way to celebrate than to include all 211 stories into the Knickerbocker Classic Series?

Featuring all your favorite classics, including “Hansel and Gretel,” “Cinderella,” “The Frog Prince,” “Rapunzel,” “Snow White,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” and dozens more, The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales is also accompanied by 40 color plates and 60 black and white illustrations from award-winning English illustrator Arthur Rackham, whose books and prints are now highly sought-after collectibles.

The third title in the Knickerbocker Classic series has 800 pages of classic fairy tales to enjoy and will also feature a full-cloth binding, ribbon marker, and will fit neatly in an elegant slipcase for your personal library collection.

Also includes a selection of stunning color reproductions by the famous illustrator, Arthur Rackham.

This edition seems consistent in language and style with the old edition I grew up with and is as good to read as ever. It is translated in the archaic and poetic style of English that relates very closely to the German idiom. I do wish that the publishers of this ebook had included a frontispiece with information on edition, translation and whatnot to give me more confidence that it is the real thing.

This collection is a load of interesting little stories. These originals are way more twisted than fairytales of my childhood. In these versions, the repercussions are more bloody and less forgiving.

I loved these fairy tales as a child, and can still remember most of them. My parents gave me an entire set of books called "Junior Classics" which included Grimm's Fairy Tales, Aesop's Fables, Hans Christian Anderson, and so many, many other stories! Wish I still had those books, but alas, my sisters also discovered them, and...well...you can guess what eventually happened to them!!! Needless to say, I am so very happy to have this complete collection, which I will now read to my great-grandchildren, with great pleasure!
