Enchanting, brimming with the wonder and magic of  once upon a time, the fairly 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 Brothers Grimm intended  them to be-rich, stark, spiced with humor and  violence, resonant with the rhythms of folklore and  song. Volume I contains 100 unabridged tales,  including those best-known around the  world:Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, Hansel And  Gretel, and Little Red Cap  [also known as Little Red Riding Hood  ]. These wonderful tales of life, passion, and  make-believe appeal not only to children-who  unabashedly love them-but to readers of any age.

About the Author:

Jack Zipes is a preeminent fairy-tale scholar who has written, translated, and edited dozens of books, including The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm and Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde. He is a professor emeritus of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota.

Johnny Gruelle (1880–1938) is best known for creating the world-famous rag doll characters, Raggedy Ann and Andy. While the Raggedys were indisputably the centerpiece of Gruelle's career, in his heart of hearts, Johnny was a dyed-in-the-wool freelance artist, who felt most at home at his drawing board, crafting illustrations and features for newspapers and magazines.
