The Complete Fairy Tales

The Complete Fairy Tales


Your favourite fantastic Grimm fairy tales and bedtime stories in the only complete edition of this classic collection.

Wolves and grandmothers, ugly sisters, a house made of bread, a goose made of gold...the folk tales collected by the Grimm brothers created an astonishingly influential imaginative world. However, this is also a world where a woman serves her stepson up in a stew, a man marries a snake, a princess sleeps with a frog, and an evil queen dances to death in a pair of burning shoes. Violent, funny, disturbing, wise and sometimes beautiful, these stories have intrigued children, adults, scholars, psychologists and artists for centuries.

The only complete edition available of the most famous collection of fairy tales ever published, this collection features the 279 stories in an acclaimed, modern, unexpurgated translation. Now featuring an introduction from translator Jack Zipes.


  • It is hardly too much to say that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance
