Product Description

Review

Praise for the first edition: "...can inspire that sharp fairytale pleasure at impending danger, as when the witch's voice cackles: 'Nibble, nibble where's the mouse? Who's that nibbling at my house.'" (Marina Warner, The Times); "[It is] a very good thing to rescue fairy tales from their airbrushed, deracinated, Barbie-ised place in modern culture..." (New Statesman); "For this beautiful edition...Maria Tatar has provided new translations and a series of fascinating textual notes." (London Review of Books) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

About the Author

MARIA TATAR is the dean for the humanities and the John L. Loeb Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures at Harvard University.

Format: Hardcover
I was looking for a Brother Grimm book that would act as, not only a story book for my upcoming little girl, but also as a keepsake for her to have when she grew up. I'm a librarian, and have come across many substandard children's abridged versions of the Brothers Grimm, and when I started my search I was unsure if I would be able to find something that would satisfy me. This book has done just that. First of all, physically, this book is gorgeous. It has an embossed cover, and a collection of colour plates from various artists who have illustrated for Brothers Grimm tales in the past. The illustrations are traditional, so if you are looking for the funky, primary coloured modern-esque style of children's book illustrations that have become very popular, you will not find it in this book. It is hard cover, but the paper used makes it lighter weight than most. The paper quality is very good, it will certainly pass the test of time without going "dusty", yellow and brittle. The type is clear and a good size (about size 11 font?), making it good for bed times too.

The stories themselves will also stand the test of time, as the book contains both children's and adult stories from the Grimm Brothers. Other reviewer's will have done a much better job at explaining the quality of the stories than I, so I will leave the descriptions to them. However, I will add a clarification that I felt was missing from the other reviews when I purchased this book. The children's stories ARE suitable for children's ears. Any reference to Rapunzel becoming pregnant are in the notes in the side columns, and can be skipped until they themselves can read it and ask questions at a more suitable age.

While I have not yet had time to read the whole thing I have enjoyed the book so far. What is more important to me is that it is a wonderful looking book that seems sure to become a keepsake for our family. The heavy, solid binding is gorgeous. The notes to the stories are entertaining and educational.

You might be worried that a book with the name "Grimm" in it may make for some poor foreshadowing, but this transaction was anything but!

Not only was shipping fast, but the book came in immaculate condition!

I would definitely come back for all and any of my texticular needs!
