Jacob and Wilhelm’s first book of fairy tales, Children’s and Household Tales, published in 1812, included 86 folktales, and was an instant success. Shortly thereafter, the brothers incorporated 70 more stories in their next volume of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales”. This continued for six more editions! The complete collection contains over 200 stories, and is probably the best-known work of German literature. Filled with fantasy, magic, and talking animals, these enchanting tales for children often teach a lesson about moral values, and right from wrong. Reader Laura Paton’s warmth and flair for characters, paired with bright and exciting classical music, results in a memorable production that younger listeners will enjoy again and again

About the Author
When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, aka the Brothers Grimm, set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore. Once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, however, they began softening some of the harsher aspects to make them more suitable for children. A cornerstone of Western culture since the early 1800s, Grimm’s Fairy Tales is now one of the world’s most beloved books.
