Enchanting, brimming with the wonder and magic of Once Upon A Time, the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are the special stories of childhood that stay with us throughout our lives. But most Americans know them only secondhand, in adaptations that greatly reduce the tales' power to touch our emotions and intrigue our imaginations. Now, in the most comprehensive translation to date, here are the classic fairy tales as the Bothers Grimm intended them to be--rich, stark, spiced with humor and violence, resonant with the rhythms of folklore and song. Volume II contains 142 unabridged tales, including such bedtime favorites as "Snow White and Rose Red" and "The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes," as well as 32 little-known tales that the Brothers Grimm omitted during the course of their many revisions. These wonderful tales of life, passion, and make-believe appeal not only to children--who unabashedly love them--but to readers of any age.Jack Zipes is the author of 'Complete Fairy Tales of Brothers Grimm II', published 1988 under ISBN 9780553212518 and ISBN 0553212516.
