Description
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 happilybut they're often far more interesting.
This elegant edition of Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales includes all our cherished favoritesSnow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Cap, and many morein their original versions. With specially designed end papers, a genuine leather cover, and other enhancements, it's the perfect gift for anyone looking to build a complete home library.
Many of these tales begin with the familiar refrain of once upon a time but they end with something unexpected and fascinating
