One of the most beloved collections of fairy tales in a splendid new paperback edition. For almost 200 years, these stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way children - and adults - learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty are only a few of more than 200 enchanting tales included in this collection. Lyrically translated and beautifully illustrated, these stories are presented just as the Brothers Grimm originally set them down.

    "Among the few indispensable, common-property books upon which Western culture can be founded . . . It will be a mistake if this volume is merely bought for a child; it should be, first and foremost, an educational 'must' for adults." -W. H. Auden, The New York Times "Here it is, clear and fine and solid, beautifully and passionately illustrated, this one book-other than the Bible-that has truly made Western man." -P. L. Travers, The New Republic "Everyone should possess and know Grimm's Fairy Tales-one of the great books of the world-and no English-speaking person could do better than this edition." -Richard Adams, The New York Times Book Review "[A] splendid edition, admirably illustrated."-Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker
