9780141442228: Grimm Tales: For Young and Old (Penguin Classics)

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.

Product Description:

Grimm Tales

Review:

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)

I've admired Philip Pullman since his early fantasy Galatea on through the splendid trilogy His Dark Materials. All of his gifts, including his prose eloquence, and his endless high Romantic imagination, are manifested in this marvelous retelling of Grimm (Harold Bloom)
