About this title

Synopsis:

Grimms' Fairy Tales is a charming new edition of one of the best-known collections of children's stories of all times. Peter Carter brings a novelist's flair for narrative pace and vivid imagery to these familiar tales while remaining faithful to the spirit and tone of the original orally transmitted stories. The authentic rhythm of spoken English is captured in Carter's clear and resonant style.
All the favorite characters are here--Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, Red Riding Hood--along with others less well-known in gripping tales such as The Singing Bone and The Carrion Crows. Haunting and powerful, sad and humorous, these stories remain as fresh and fascinating as the first day they were told.

From the Inside Flap:

Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, and Snow White are among the jewels we owe to the German brothers Grimm, who began in the first decade of the 19th century to seek out and listen to village storytellers. The best-loved of the tales they discovered are now brought together with the marvelous pictures that in 1900 first established the reputation of one of the greatest children's illustrators of all time, Arthur Rackham.
