Grimm Tales: For Young and Old (Clothbound Hardcover)

by Phillip Pulman
"Never putting a foot wrong, the result is a magical complexity-in-simplicity that is sure to become a classic in its own right" -- Adam Lively, Sunday Times

"Philip Pullman has radically reworked the Grimm tales for all ages" -- Nicolette Jones, Telegraph

"One of Pullman's most useful additions is the vastly improved poems and jingles...his freer versions are catchy and authentic," Guardian

 

An Elegant Retelling, Enhanced by the Author's Notes

In this beautiful book of classic fairy tales, award-winning author Philip Pullman has chosen his fifty favourite stories from the Brothers Grimm and presents them in a'clear as water' retelling, in his unique and brilliant voice.

From the quests and romance of classics such as 'Rapunzel', 'Snow White' and 'Cinderella' to the danger and wit of such lesser-known tales as 'The Three Snake Leaves', 'Hans-my-Hedgehog' and 'Godfather Death', Pullman brings the heart of each timeless tale to the fore, following with a brief but fascinating commentary on the story's background and history. In his introduction, he discusses how these stories have lasted so long, and become part of our collective storytelling imagination.

These new versions show the adventures at their most lucid and engaging yet. Pullman's Grimm Tales of wicked wives, brave children and villainous kings will have you reading, reading aloud and rereading them for many years to come.

Soundly Researched, Beautifully Written

At once ancient and modern, a must-have addition to the storyteller's library in a lavish cloth-bound edition they will treasure always.
