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.

When I was a child, I would check this book out from our local library every week. The illustrations have stayed with me for 20 years. Now that I have a daughter, I am so glad to have found this book and to be able to share it with her. It is a striking and beautiful book. I hope others will take the opportunity to enjoy this book with their children as I will with my daughter.

I read it to my triplets every night . They love it! Great but some times we spill on the cover of book and it just wipes right off! My triplets are 4 and have another girl on the way. Will make good child memories! Great pictures and very well detailed. Would recomend it for all you moms with small children but not for ages 6 and up. My husband read this book to them while I was stuck at work and great for dads to read to their children too. Can't wait till the next fariy tale comes out like this! Worth the money!

This version of "Snow White" gets extra bonus points for following the Grimms version very closely rather than the dumbed down Disney version. The illustrations of Snow White are prettier too (although her mom's the prettiest one in this book). A good one for comparison, because it includes the poison comb, tight corset laces, and spitting out the apple rather than being kissed as death/ life issues.

Though I care little for the story of Snow White, or any fairytale that places importance on beauty, the illustrations are incredible. Already at 4 my daughter is deeply concerned with needing to look beatiful. I dislike how this story portrays good character through beauty. In our society today, I feel that traditional tales such as these do not belong on our daughters shelves.

This NOOKbook comes up when you look for for Caldecott Medal books, but it IS NOT the Caldecott winning version. That may not make any difference to you, but since I was purchasing books for a class requiring all of the young adult and children's literature to be books which have won one of a list of certain awards, it means it was a TOTAL waste of money for me.
