Once upon a time... A selection of nine Brothers Grimm fairy tales complete with vintage illustrations. Special features: read-aloud mode and 16 animated illustrations!
In honor of their 200th anniversary, The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm brings to life nine of the most beloved Grimm stories, including classics such as Cinderella, Frog Prince, Puss 'n Boots, and Hansel and Gretel, in a vibrant and meticulous new translation commissioned for this publication. Containing a selection of charming vintage illustrations from the 1820s to the 1950s by true masters of pictorial invention—the legendary Kay Nielsen, British artist Walter Crane and giants of nineteenth century German illustration like Gustav Süs, as well as many new discoveries—this compilation also features historic and contemporary silhouettes that dance across the pages like delicate black paper lace. In addition to the tales and illustrations, the eBook contains an afterword on the Grimms' legacy, brief introductions to each fairy tale, and extended artists' biographies in the appendix.
For adults and children alike, this eBook rekindles the eternal magic of the Grimms' tales—the second most widely read collection of stories in the world after the Bible.
