I started reading this book on January 2 of this year and I’ve been slowly, slowly working my way through it. It’s 752 pages and contains 211 stories. I think, if I had tried to read this book all at once, I probably would have given up on it. As it is, I’m not sure finishing it is the wisest thi...

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.

I have to admit that this is my second time reading through this. Each different editions. There is nothing like a classic, and the way each story seems like it's being told by the fireside is a wonderful read. Though there are some stories that end up very violently, and left up to the parent if it...

Since Marisa Meyers bases her Lunar Chronicles books on the tale of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White I thought that I re-read these classic fairy tales so I am not in the dark so much about who some of the characters are supposed to be in the books. My version has twenty-...

Admito, antes de comenzar, que no he leído los cuentos de hadas clásicos, transcritos por los coleccionistas (los hermanos Grimm, Charles Perrault, Madame d'Aulnoy) y hace mucho deseaba empezar cuando me encontré con esta versión, donde Philip Pullman, autor de La materia oscura, elige cincuenta cue...
