''The wolf thought to himself, "What a tender young creature! what a nice plump mouthful - she will be better to eat than the old woman. I must act craftily, so as to catch both."'' Collected by the German Grimm brothers, these folk tales have captured the imaginations of children and adults alike since they were first published in 1812. The best-known stories such as The Golden Goose, Hansel and Gretel, The Frog Prince, and Snow-White and Rose-Red remain as popular today as when first told, although there is an underlying darkness and violence to the original stories that has softened over time.
Wolves and grandmothers, ugly sisters, a house made of bread, a goose made of gold. This is a collection of folk tales collected by the Grimm brothers.
'Then she began to run, and she ran over the sharp stones and through the thorns, and the wild animals bounded past her ...' Four weird, dark and enchanting fairy-tales from the Brothers Grimm.
