Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales

release date: Nov 15, 2012
Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales
No library''s complete without the classics! This new edition collects the legendary fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. They are the stories we''ve known since we were children. Rapunzel. Hansel and Gretel. Cinderella. Sleeping Beauty. But the works originally collected by the Brothers Grimm in the early 1800s are not necessarily the versions we heard before bedtime. They''re darker and often don''t end very happily--but they''re often far more interesting. This edition of Grimm''s Complete Fairy Tales includes all our cherished favorites--Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Cap, and many more--in their original versions. Many of these tales begin with the familiar refrain of “once upon a time”--but they end with something unexpected and fascinating!

Household Stories by the Brothers Grimm

release date: Jan 01, 2009
Household Stories by the Brothers Grimm
They saw their work in gathering the fairy tales of Europe as an academic exercise, but the Brothers Grimm-aka German folklorists and linguists JAKOB (1785-1863) and WILHELM GRIMM (1786-1859)-are today remembered best as tellers of dark stories for children. Here, in one compact volume, are 53 of the most beloved of the stories they assembled, from well-known ones such as "The Sleeping Beauty," "The Frog Prince," "Rapunzel," and "Hansel and Grethel" to more obscure ones including "The Rabbit''s Bride," "Six Soldiers of Fortune," "Faithful John," and "The Three Spinsters." A treasury of classic stories, this replica of an 1886 edition-translated by English writer LUCY CRANE (1842-1882), with beautiful line drawings by her brother, William Crane-will delight children and adults alike.

Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm

Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm
The legendary folklorists Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are widely credited with preserving and documenting Europe''s oral fairy tale tradition. On several extended trips collecting stories in and around Germany, the pair transcribed more than 200 classic folk tales. This volume compiles some of the most popular and well-known fairy tales from the Grimms'' body of work.

The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm

release date: Oct 13, 2016
The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm
When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children''s and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezsö. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold—heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique—they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms'' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes''s introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms'' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.

Hansel and Gretel and Other Stories by the Brothers Grimm - Illustrated by Kay Nielsen

release date: Apr 01, 2012
Hansel and Gretel and Other Stories by the Brothers Grimm - Illustrated by Kay Nielsen
Pook Press celebrates the great Golden Age of Illustration in children''s literature. Many of the earliest children''s books, particularly those dating back to the 1850s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) was a Danish illustrator of the golden age of illustration. He was influenced by Japanese art and the Swedish fairy tale illustrator John Bauer and contributed to the Art Nouveau movement. His illustrations are bold, and vibrant - often reproduced by a 4-colour process which set him apart from his contemporaries who typically used a 3-colour process. His art is characterised by long, swooping lines, open spaces and a certain macabre quality and his ephemeral illustrations are intricately inventive, flirting with implausibility. The shift in taste from fantasy to realism after WWII meant that Nielsen did not retain his pre-war popularity. However, interest in his exquisite illustrations has since been revived, and they now command a high price in today''s art world.
