For almost two centuries, the 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, Hänsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (a.k.a. Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of more than 200 enchanting characters included here. Lyrically translated and beautifully illustrated, the tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.

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...

5.0 Grimm's Fairy Tales
I adore fairy tales. Have I said that before? Because I really do. And it's especially interesting seeing the same basic fairy tales retold by the different classics. For instance, both Perrault and the brothers Grimm included Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Sleeping Beauty, among others, an...
