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."

Children and adults will delight in these enchanting tales, including best-loved stories such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Princess and the Pea, The Elves and the Shoemaker, Rapunzel and The Ugly Duckling.

Accompanying the text, Cathie Shuttleworth’s beautifully intricate illustrations and gold embellishments decorate every page, making this lovely book a pleasure for parents to read to their children or for children to read by themselves. Hans Christian Andersen, the Danish storyteller, was born in 1805. Although he was the son of a poor shoemaker, he longed to make his living by writing. After many struggles, he finally became known as a poet, but today it is his fairy tales that are best loved. Perhaps the secret of Andersen’s success is that he wrote his stories, as he told a friend, as if he were telling them to a child. Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm was born in 1785 in Germany. His brother Wilhelm Carl came along a year later. Both brothers loved the German language and the stories that were told in it. In 1812, they published their first collection of folk and fairy tales, collected from all over Germany. Many of the stories had been told for centuries, enchanting children and adults with their mixture of magic and mystery. The brothers went on to make other collections and their books were soon translated around the world.
Maria Stephens, Raymond Stephens & The Brothers Grimm This book is an addition to the Mechanical Horse's "Snow-White in the City".
Imagine you are a kid living in a big city in 21st century. Who is the huntsman? Who are the dwarfs and what are they digging the gold for? What is a peddler? Why is the queen so mean to a little girl? And where is her father during the whole ordeal? This book won't answer all of these questions, but the modern illustrations will help kids to enjoy this classic tale.
The huntsman is a doorman, the great forest is a city park and the dwarfs are just kind hard-working people.
Told through the eyes of a regular little girl reliving the tale in her imagination this book will be fun to share with the whole family.

The Brothers Grimm The first volume of the first edition was published in 1812, containing 86 stories; the second volume of 70 stories followed in 1815. For the second edition, two volumes were issued in 1819 and a third in 1822, totalling 170 tales. The third edition appeared in 1837; fourth edition, 1840; fifth edition, 1843; sixth edition, 1850; seventh edition, 1857. Stories were added, and also subtracted, from one edition to the next, until the seventh held 211 tales. All editions were extensively illustrated, first by Philipp Grot Johann and, after his death in 1892, by German illustrator Robert Leinweber.
The first volumes were much criticized because, although they were called "Children's Tales", they were not regarded as suitable for children, both for the scholarly information included and the subject matter. Many changes through the editions – such as turning the wicked mother of the first edition in Snow White and Hansel and Gretel (shown in original Grimm stories as Hänsel and Grethel) to a stepmother, were probably made with an eye to such suitability. They removed sexual references—such as Rapunzel's innocently asking why her dress was getting tight around her belly, and thus naïvely revealing to her stepmother her pregnancy and the prince's visits—but, in many respects, violence, particularly when punishing villains, was increased.
In 1825, the Brothers published their Kleine Ausgabe or "small edition", a selection of 50 tales designed for child readers. This children's version went through ten editions between 1825 and 1858.
Excerpt from Wikipedia, ‘Grimm’s Fairy Tales’
The Brothers Grimm Once upon a time, two brothers wished to preserve their German folklore in a collection of tales that they believed had been handed down for generations. When they began in 1812 they had just 86 stories that rather harshly reflected the difficult life of European peasantry. Subsequent editions would grow to hold over 200 tales. As time passed, the Brothers Grimm found that their collection of fairy tales, with all of its royalty, magical creatures, and brave adventures, entranced those who read them. This compilation of fairy tales which includes the complete canon of over 200 tales has become a beloved set of classical stories the world over. Presented here in this edition is the faithful translation of Margaret Hunt.
The Brothers Grimm Children's and Household Tales is a collection of fairy tales first published in 1812 by the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm. The collection is commonly known in English as Grimms' Fairy Tales.
They are the stories we've known since we were children: Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Cap, and many more. Many of these tales begin with the familiar refrain of “once upon a time”—but they end with something unexpected and fascinating!
