The Fox and the Cat
It happened that the cat met Mr. Fox in the woods. She thought, 'He is intelligent and well experienced, and is highly regarded in the world', so she spoke to him in a friendly manner, 'Good-day, my dear Mr. Fox. How is it going? How are you? How are you getting by in these hard times?'
A rich man’s wife became sick, and when she felt that her end was drawing near, she called her only daughter to her bedside and said, 'Dear child, remain pious and good, and then our dear God will always protect you, and I will look down on you from heaven and be near you'. With this she closed her eyes and died.
The Six Swans
A king was once hunting in a great forest, and he chased his prey so eagerly that none of his men could follow him. As evening approached he stopped and looked around, and saw that he was lost. He looked for a way out of the woods, but he could not find one. Then he saw an old woman with a bobbing head who approached him. She was a witch.
The Girl without Hands
A miller fell slowly but surely into poverty, until finally he had nothing more than his mill and a large apple tree which stood behind it. One day he had gone into the forest to gather wood, where he was approached by an old man, whom he had never seen before, and who said, 'Why do you torment yourself with chopping wood? I will make you rich if you will promise me that which is standing behind your mill'.
The Old Woman in the Forest
A poor servant-girl was once travelling with the family with which she was in service, through a great forest, and when they were in the midst of it, robbers came out of the thicket, and murdered all they found. All perished together except the girl, who had jumped out of the carriage in a fright, and hidden herself behind a tree.
The Nixie in the Pond
Once upon a time there was a miller. He lived contentedly with his wife. They had money and land, and their prosperity increased from year to year. But misfortune comes overnight. Just as their wealth had increased, so did it decrease from year to year, until finally the miller scarcely owned even the mill where he lived. He was in great distress, and when he lay down after a day’s work, he found no rest, but tossed and turned in his bed, filled with worries.
"Legendre's art pairs well with the Grimms' surreal, daring, and surprisingly adult fairy tales." - Entertainment Weekly

Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859), German author and cultural researcher, was one half of the Grimm Brothers; authors of some of the most popular and best-known European fairy tales. He was born in the town of Hanau, in what was at the time the Holy Roman Empire. He was a graduate of the University of Marburg.
The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859), who today are among the most popular and best-known storytellers of folk tales, were German linguists and cultural researchers who gathered and published their influential collections of legendary folklore during the 19th century.
