Goodreads Description:
For almost two centuries, the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way children—and adults—learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, Hänsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (a.k.a. Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of more than 200 enchanting characters included here. Lyrically translated and beautifully illustrated, the tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.

My Review: 
This book was wonderful as it was brilliant to see where all of the classic fairy tales we all know and love originally came from. Some of the tales were exciting, some a little boring and some just plain weird! Cinderella was the one that stood out the most to me as it was so different from the original! she falls into a well and goes to a magical land where bread can talk, and there is not once prince in sight! This book was entertaining and fun and worth a read if you have a kindle because it is free!

Quotes: 

 “Mirror, mirror, here I stand. Who is the fairest in the land?”

“He who is too well off is always longing for something new.”

“One feather is of no use to me, I must have the whole bird.”
