Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786 1859), were German academics best known for publishing collections of folk tales and fairy tales, which became popular. Jacob also did academic work in linguistics, related to how the sounds in words shift over time (Grimm's law), and together they wrote a German dictionary. They are among the best-known story tellers of folk tales from Europe, and their work popularized such tales as "Rumpelstiltskin"(German: Rumpelstilzchen), "Snow White", "Sleeping Beauty", "Rapunzel", "Cinderella"(German: Aschenputtel), "Hansel and Gretel(German: Hänsel und Gretel)", and "The Frog Prince"(German: Der Froschkonig).

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle format very well done April 19, 2014
By Greg
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I believe reviews of the Kindle format should focus on that rather than the content so that is what I will do here. After suffering through some bad and some horrible inexpensive Kindle classics I was so happy to find this edition. The production quality is very good: the index is usable, there aren't any bad OCR issues, it is a joy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grim and good! March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read an original battered copy of Grimm's fairy tales to my daughter every night. I explain how companies like Disney have gotten so many things wrong. This is just another copy of something we will always cherish together. Different medium, same awesomeness. The main stand out is how Grimm's stories are often ended in a quirky way. My personal favorite is:" and they lived happily ever after, until they died." Grim indeed, but I like it.

I love it. It could get a bit violent at times, but at other times, I laughed at the silliness of the brothers Grimm.
