Originally entitled Children's and Household Tales, Grimm's Fairy Tales were first published by the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in the early nineteenth century. This selection contains 80 stories and includes some of the best known, such as 'Briar-Rose' (perhaps better known as 'Sleeping Beauty'), and 'Little Red-Cap' ('Little Red Riding Hood'), as well as some lesser known tales, like 'The Bremen Town Musicians', 'The Goose-Girl' and 'King Thrushbeard'. Handsome princes and princesses, wicked witches and step-mothers, benevolent kings and fortune seekers abound among the stories that were collected from all over Germany in the folklore tradition. But no matter what the moral of the story, good always triumphs over evil. Also included are more a selection of Arthur Rackham's marvellous illustrations which inject new life into these timeless tales.
