Summary

Read by a cast of award-winning narrators, this collection contains some of the most timeless and enchanting folk and fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm.

The Brothers Grimm collected the original fairy tales that Americans are most familiar with today. Lyrically translated and beautifully narrated by an all-star cast, these 21 tales are selected from The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales and presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.

Critic reviews

"Opening with Katherine Kellgren's stately, measured reading of 'Rapunzel,' this collection presents these tales in all of their original, macabre splendor.... From Jim Dale's fully voiced reading of 'Rumpelstiltskin' to Kate Rudd's formal narration of 'Little Snow-White' and Dion Graham's lightly accented rendition of 'The Twelve Huntsmen,' these are stellar performances."
