Even allowing for the Grimm brothers sanitisation of the Taken from the East European oral tradition, and first published in 1812, these stories were originally collated and published in Germany by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Although softened to appease Christian sensibilities of the day, this compilation still became a sort of cult horror anthology for children. Indeed, returning to these gruesome little tales as an adult, I can see that they are indeed 'grim', and make curious bedtime reading.

Grimms' Fairy Tales, originally known as the Children's and Household Tales (German: Kinder- und Hausmärchen, pronounced ), is a collection of fairy tales by the Grimm brothers or "Brothers Grimm", Jakob.

Grimms' Fairy Tales, originally known as the Children's and Household Tales (German: Kinder- und Hausmärchen, pronounced ), is a collection of fairy tales by the Grimm brothers or "Brothers Grimm", Jakob and Wilhelm, first published on 20 December 1812.

Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm (1785 - 1863) also known as Ludwig Karl, was a German philologist, jurist and mythologist. Jacob was sent to the public school at Kassel in 1798 with his younger brother Wilhelm (born on 24 February 1786). In 1802, he proceeded to the University of Marburg where he studied law, a profession for which he had been destined by his father.

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were two brothers born in Frankfurt in the old German kingdom of Hesse. They studied law, but were passionately interested in folklore. Though Wilhelm's ill-health made traveling difficult, they toured Germany and neighboring European countries in the 18th century documenting folk tales commonly recounted by word of mouth in small villages and communities.

Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859) did not demonstrate a particular interest in folk or fairy tales during their youth in the small towns of Hanau and Steinau in Hesse, where they spent their childhood. Certainly, they were familiar with them, but they were schooled in a traditional classical manner that included learning Greek and Latin. In fact, there were few if any books of folk or fairy tales for children to read in those days, and there is no evidence that they were exposed to any of them.

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world.

From "Dummling and the Three Feathers": Once upon a time there lived a King who had three sons; the two elder were learned and bright, but the youngest said very little and appeared somewhat foolish, so he was always known as Dummling.

When the King grew old and feeble, feeling that he was nearing his end, he wished to leave the crown to one of his three sons, but could not decide to which. He thereupon settled that they should travel, and that the one who could obtain the most splendid carpet should ascend the throne when he died.

So that there could be no disagreement as to the way each one should go, the King conducted them to the courtyard of the Palace, and there blew three feathers, by turn, into the air, telling his sons to follow the course that the three feathers took.

Then one of the feathers flew eastwards, another westwards, but the third went straight up towards the sky, though it only sped a short distance before falling to earth.

Therefore one son traveled towards the east, and the second went to the west, both making fun of poor Dummling, who was obliged to stay where his feather had fallen. Then Dummling, sitting down and feeling rather miserable after his brothers had gone, looked about him, and noticed that near to where his feather lay was a trapdoor. On lifting this up he perceived a flight of steps, down which he went. At the bottom was another door, so he knocked upon it, and then heard a voice calling . . .

This 1922 free kindle book contains more than two dozen delightful short tales by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Most of the stories are well-known, but told with details that differ with what we are familiar with, such as Rumpelstiltskin, Cinderella, and Hansel and Grethel. Many of the tales were new to me.
For example, in Goose-Girl, a beautiful princess was betrothed to a prince and sent to him together with an evil servant girl. The story tells how the servant gained control over the princess and married the prince. The princess was then forced to work as a goose-girl. The story tells how the deceit was discovered and the princess married the prince. The story has in it a plot line from the biblical book Esther where the king asks the evil person (Haman/servant girl) what should be done to the person who did such and such.
All of the stories are fun to read.

This is one of those cases where you've heard of something for so long that you think you've already experienced it, but then you realize that you haven't so it give it a try and it's not what you expected...Does that make sense?

Everyone is familiar with some aspect of the Grim Fairly Tales, but how many of us have actually read any of the original stories. I fan a fairytales for as long as I can remember, I decided it was time for me to right a great wrong I had committed against myself. I had never read any of the Grim stories until recently and I was shocked, amazed, weirded out, and a little disappointed.

Don't get me wrong, I loved these stories, they were awesome, but they were not what I think of as fairytales. I have been so brainwashed by mainstream modern thinking that I almost wouldn't allow myself to enjoy these stories for what they truly are, brilliant.

I think the main two reasons I didn't give this book a five is: 1. that I would never actually read these to any child under the age of 10. If a nine year happened to pick these up and love them, good for them, but I'm not planting crazy dreams into the minds of any kids anytime soon...oh and fables these are not; not many good lessons to be learned here. 2. Some of the stories seemed to overlap or repeat. I know that in this day and age, everyone borrows ideas from everyone else, but I figured back then, these guys should have been able to come up with a collection of stories that didn't all sound the same...but of course I'm exaggerating. Most of the stores were quite original, but the little bit of repetition there was, drove me crazy.

I must give the brothers Grim and whoever influenced them, some French guy I can think of, a clap of praise for inspiring and influencing storytellers for centuries beyond their time. I might, just for fun, one day write my own versions of these wonderful stories. I mean, they are now permanently stained onto my brain, I might as well do something with them...Truthfully, I'd recommend this to anyone ten or over.

The original versions of what you're used to associate to the term "fairy tales". You’ve probably heard them all before, but not quite like this. The texts were put into digital format by voluntary work, and the job is well done, most of all for the price that you're paying. The text is not quite contemporary, but the read is easy and pleasant. Worth your while for certain.

This book taught me three things:
1. I was indoctrinated by Disney and prefer their versions.
2. All step-mothers are evil.
3. Happily ever after only requires unlimited riches and a hot spouse.

The quality of the stories here speak for themselves. If you have never had the read the Grimm tales it is well worth your time to read both the stories that are new and the ones you think you know. You may be surprised what you find.

For a public domain Kindle book I am very impressed with how well organized this collection is. It lacks any of the extras you might hope for in a co-reading book but as a straight out loud or personal reader it is an excellent collection.

It is really nice to be able to find all the wonderful stories that I grew up with in one place. The book includes tales such as "Cinderella", "Little Red Cap" (AKA-Little Red Riding Hood), "Hansel and Grethel", "Rapunzel", "The Frog Prince" and TONS more. Many of these have been made into movies but reading the real version too can be a real eye opener. In addition to all the stories you may "know" there are some wonderful ones that are worth taking a look at.

A wonderful read and fantastic story! Book received in reasonable amount of time and in new condition as expected. Very pleased customer.
I read these stories before in a paper book. Some are more famous than others. I am glad to have them on my Kindle. Snow White, Hansel and Grethel, and other stories you have heard of are contained in this book. There are others too you may not have heard of but are equally as entertaining in the book. A good read.
