|aPresents ten classic fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm, with new illustrations and updated wording
Enter a magical world of beautiful princesses, handsome princes, goblins, faeries, and dwarves. Here are ten of the most loved fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm in one wickedly entertaining volume.
From that odd little man with the strange name, Rumpelstiltskin, to that slimy green frog who -- when kissed -- becomes a handsome prince, to brave Rapunzel, imprisoned high in her tower, this is a book full of wonder.
Saviour Pirotta’s spirited, contemporary language is perfect for reading aloud. Emma Chichester Clark’s illustrations glow with humor and mischief, capturing the loveliness and spookiness of these eternally enchanted tales.
