Overview

‘Little Tales from Grimm’ contains a delightful collection of stories from the Brothers Grimm – all re-told for children. It contains eleven shortened versions of the tales, including ‘The Frog Prince’, ‘Rapunzel’, ‘Snow White’, ‘The Goose Girl’, ‘Hansel and Gretel’, ‘The Valiant Little Tailor’, and more. The Brothers Grimm are perhaps the best known folklorists of all time. Die Brüder Grimm; Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors – who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the nineteenth century. The popularity of their collected tales has endured well; they have been translated into more than 100 languages, and remain in print in the present day. Anne Anderson (1874 – 1930) was a prolific Scottish illustrator, primarily known for her art nouveaux children’s book illustrations. Characteristic of her work are decorative and lightly drawn or painted illustrations, depicting neatly dressed children, carefully dressed, with angelic pear-shaped faces. She also painted, etched and designed many greetings cards, with her illustrations appearing near the end of the Edwardian era. Presented alongside the text of ‘Little Tales from Grimm’, her drawings further refine and elucidate the Brothers Grimm’s masterful storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s classics and fairy tales – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

About the Author

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, aka the Brothers Grimm, set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore. Once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, however, they began softening some of the harsher aspects to make them more suitable for children. A cornerstone of Western culture since the early 1800s, Grimm’s Fairy Tales is now one of the world’s most beloved books.
