by Richard Burton Kenneth C. Mondschein

Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales

by Jacob Grimm Wilhelm Grimm Margaret Hunt Kenneth C. Mondschein

They are the stories we've known since we were children: Rapunzel-Hansel and Gretel-Cinderella-and 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 while they don't always end happily, their dark conclusions can be far more interesting.This edition of Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales includes all our cherished favorites-Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Cap, and many more-in their original versions. Many of these tales begin with the familiar refrain of "once upon a time"-but they end with something unexpected and fascinating!
