|Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm.|
|Pages/Publication Date:||488 / 2019|
We've seen many fine collections of tales from the Brothers Grimm, and this compact yet handsome edition strikes us as ideal for travel and reading aloud. It features a yellow cloth cover with embossed gold details, blue page edges and endpapers, a sewn binding and a ribbon marker. Inside are 64 of the brothers' best loved and most intriguing stories, nearly all of them beginning with "There was once" or "Once upon a time." After little listeners have fallen asleep, adult readers can turn to essays describing the Romantic Revival when the tales were written, and how they have been revised and perceived over the years; an illustrated timeline of the Grimms' era; and introductions to enduring characters.
