Publisher's Summary

Many well-loved modern stories have roots in the imaginations of the brothers Grimm, but do you know Rapunzel's real predicament, or Hansel and Gretel's gruesome revenge after eating an old woman out of house and home, or the lengths Cinderella's stepsisters would go to achieve the perfect fit? With these original tales, you'll discover the darker side of once upon a time. Mined from rich German folklore, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm's fairy tales have become staples of childhood for generations - and the subject of both Jungian and Freudian analysis. This collection of seven of their original stories includes "Briar Rose", "The Juniper Tree", "The White Snake", and "The Frog-Prince".

Wonderful Narration of Classic Tales


This Kindle in Motion book is a fantastic collection of some of the Brothers Grimm's well known fairy tales. The digital book is beautifully illustrated and enhanced by a wonderful audio book version. I read this book using immersion reading. It was interesting to learn the original versions of several well known tales. Very enjoyable and wonderfully narrated.

a great classic

I always wanted to read The Brothers Grimm fairy tales but it never had a chance to. Found this book on Kindle unlimited and thought I would give it a try. Wasn't able to take advantage of the whole illustration part of it. But the audio version exceeded my expectations
