The Lovereading4Kids comment
This Calla Edition of fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm is drawn from the mammoth collection first published in 1909 and illustrated by Arthur Rackham. His 40 full-colour plates, plus innumerable black-and-white spot elements, get sensitive treatment in a design that retains the best features of the original, including the ornate gilt stamping on the case. This is really a book to treasure and will last more than a lifetime.
Also selected by Jenny Downham, January 2011 Guest Editor:
"This was the second book I was given on my eleventh birthday. Here are sorcerers and thieves and murderers and lost children and wicked adults and buckets of blood! Many stories we know well, such as Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel and Cinderella have their roots in an ancient folk tradition which doesn’t provide a sanitised happy ending. In this version of Snow-White, for instance, the wicked queen is given burning hot iron slippers to wear as a punishment and is forced to dance to her death."
