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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Pirotta has found just the right tone in retelling this selection of Grimm's fairytales. Some of the stories will be familiar, such as Sleeping Beauty, while others may be first time reads. All of the elements of the book starting with the table of contents create a mood of wonder and just enough gravity.
