Reviews

'The book is written in a nice way and the pictures help tell the story too. We enjoyed reading this book. A rating of 4/5.'

.co.uk 'A mesmorising tale, beautifully illustrated and suitable for ages five to eight years.

'This classic story by the Brothers Grimm is newly illustrated with beautiful watercolours and fine detail.'

'This is a traditional and very readable retelling of the Brothers Grimm's fairytale, complimented by beautiful watercolour illustrations. Colours are very softly laid on paper enhancing the dreamlike quality of the story and the enchantment of the forest ... This is a lovely new version of one of the most engaging of the Fairy Tales and will be popular with children aged 7-9.'

About the Author

The German brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm spent years collecting and researching folk tales early in the 19th century. They published Children's and Household Tales in 1812, a collection which became known as Grimm's Fairy Tales. The collection included what are now some of the world's most famous stories, including Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel and Rumpelstiltskin. Wilhelm married in 1825, but Jacob never wed and for most of his life lived in his brother's home. The brothers also began a German historical dictionary, the enormous Deutsches Worterbuch, which ran to 16 volumes when it was finally completed by others in 1954.
