Grimm Tales: For Young and Old

by Philip Pullman - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (Penguin Classics) (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141442228 | ISBN 10: 0141442220

In this beautiful book of classic fairy tales, award-winning author Philip Pullman has chosen his fifty favourite stories from the Brothers Grimm and presents them in a 'clear as water' retelling, in his unique and brilliant voice.
 
From the quests and romance of classics such as 'Rapunzel', 'Snow White' and 'Cinderella' to the danger and wit of such lesser-known tales as 'The Three Snake Leaves', 'Hans-my-Hedgehog' and 'Godfather Death', Pullman brings the heart of each timeless tale to the fore, following with a brief but fascinating commentary on the story's background and history.
 
In his introduction, he discusses how these stories have lasted so long, and become part of our collective storytelling imagination.
 
These new versions show the adventures at their most lucid and engaging yet. Pullman's Grimm Tales of wicked wives, brave children and villainous kings will have you reading, reading aloud and rereading them for many years to come.
