Top Customer Reviews
Less recognizable tales such as The Goose Girl, The Bear And the Wren, Tom Thumb and The Twelve Dancing Princesses are included in this work.
There is no fluff and little exaggeration. These stories are written as the Grimm Brothers wrote them nearly 200 years ago.. And they are refreshing as well as refreshing. As you read them to your little ones, you can always change words and meanings if your child isn't ready for
the stark reality of the tales. These are not the tales that Disney portrays in movies and kids' books. Each story has some elements portrayed in them that reminds us of the Disney tales, but there is a big divide between Grimm and Disney. Keep this in mind should you read these tales to your young children.
The book is made of quality paper. The illustrations are very good and colorful. Read the original versions by the Brother's Grimm then compare to Disney. It's a good book to own in your library. Like everything else in life, be careful how you use it around young and impressionable children.
