#1 New York Times bestseller Philip Pullman retells the world’s best-loved fairy tales on their 200th anniversary Two centuries ago, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published the first volume of Children’s and Household Tales. Now Philip Pullman, one of the most accomplished authors of our time, makes us fall in love all over again with the immortal tales of the Brothers Grimm. Pullman retells his fifty favorites, from much-loved stories like “Cinderella” and “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Rapunzel” and “Hansel and Gretel” to lesser-known treasures like “The Three Snake Leaves," "Godfather Death" and "The Girl with No Hands." At  the end of each tale he offers a brief personal commentary, opening a window on the sources of the tales, the various forms they've taken over the centuries and their everlasting appeal. Suffused with romance and villainy, danger and wit, the Grimms' fairy tales have inspired Pullman's unique creative vision—and his beguiling retellings will draw you back into a world that has long cast a spell on the Western imagination.

5.0 Grimm's Fairy Tales
This is a book filled with many different stories by The Grimm Brothers. This would be an excellent book for older students who are looking at myths, folktales, and short stories.

4.5 Grimm Brother's Fairytales
I absolutely love the Grimm fairytales. I think that you could do a lot with this in the 5th-6th grade. Like comparing the Grimm fairytales to other versions of the stories.

3.0 The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm
I’m not sure what I expected when I began this translation of the original compilation of folk tales. I guess I anticipated some surprises, stories which I had never heard before. And there were a few of those, but mostly what surprised me was how many of these tales were familiar to me! Virtuall...

4.0 The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales (Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library)
This collection is a load of interesting little stories. These originals are way more twisted than fairytales of my childhood. In these versions, the repercussions are more bloody and less forgiving.
