Wolves and grandmothers, ugly sisters, a house made of bread, a goose made of gold... the folk tales collected by the Grimm brothers created an astonishingly influential imaginative world. However, this is also a world where a woman serves her stepson up in a stew, a man marries a snake, a princess sleeps with a frog, and an evil queen dances to death in a pair of burning shoes. Violent, funny, disturbing, wise and sometimes beautiful, these stories have intrigued children, adults, scholars, psychologists and artists for centuries. The only complete edition available of the most famous collection of fairy tales ever published, this collection features the 279 stories in an acclaimed, modern, unexpurgated translation.

Grimm's Fairy Tales
After reading these fairy tales I've never looked back and my childhood did not get ruined. It is definitely different from your usual fairy tales. Was mind blowing that the the prince didn't always get with the princess, that there wasn't always a happy ending. There's a few words I'd sum up the Brothers Grimm fairy tales with and that is Violent, funny, disturbing and wise. Reviewed by 01mb.
