Many of the fairy tales and fables we know and love today (such as ?The Sleeping Beauty? and ?Hansel and Gretel?) are stories that the European peasantry told their children to impart morals and warn about the consequences of misbehaving. Up until the nineteenth century, there was no extensive publication of these tales until two German academics, brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, collected and published them. Enjoy them today in a beautiful commemorative edition from Canterbury Classics. * This elegant book features such classics as ?Rumpelstiltskin,? ?Rapunzel,? ?Cinderella,? and many other favorites. * This collection is a perfect addition to the family library.
