Grimm s Fairy Tales the apostrophe is as it is printed on the book s title page and cover is Richard Adams s personal selection of nineteen tales which he made in 1981 This is a large format book with illustrations by Pauline Ellison Pauline Ellison is a prolific illustrator of books producing meticulous detailed watercolour images with use of natural colour tones These paintings are uite busy and the characters and interiors have a Germanic or East European feel They are very attractive and the book displays this art well using glossy paper and printing to a high standardAs I have often found with illustrated books of folk and fairy tales the actual text is very much the poor relation Here at least there is one illustration per story inserted in the story itself rather than randomly Yet the size of the book and the cramped feel of the text does not invite one to read each story The font size is very small and the translators are not credited It seems as if this is a book produced primarily for the artworksRichard Adams has written a brief essay as an introduction Presumably he was asked to make this selection because he was at the peak of his popularity in 1981 I was struck by the synchronicity of an editor who originally conceived his most famous book Watership Down as a story to tell his daughters on long car journeys just as the stories here were an oral tradition which were passed down and developed through many generations before being collected and fixed in a written form by the brothers Grimm However most of his essay was rather dry and academic which disappointed me as I do like Richard Adams s writing styleThere is nothing to say what determined his choice of stories some of which are familiar and others not It would be interesting to know what drew him to these when he had over two hundred tales by the brothers Grimm to choose from Here is the complete list of titles The Frog King or Iron HenryHansel and GretelThe Fisherman and his WifeCinderellaThumblingMother HolleThe Seven RavensFitcher s BirdThe Juniper TreThe Six SwansLittle Snow WhiteLittle Briar RoseRumpelstiltskinThe Golden BirdThe Golden GooseBearskinThe Blue LightThe MoonLittle Red CapAll in all this is not my preferred book of tales by the Brothers Grimm I would like to be able to read them without navigating a bulky book and poring over the words But the illustrations are careful uality work so I would rate this book at less than the default average hence 2 stars

I was originally was going to give this a 3 because it is uneven strange and sometimes surprisingly amoral but then i realized how much I acutally had to say about it and just how much I enjoyed reading these goofy stories So bear with me while i recount some of the best and worst stories and some of the strange themes of grimm s fairy tales I have to admit I write these reviews almost entirely for myselfSome themesthings you should know If you are an evil stepmother or witch and you are looking for a brother and sister or pair of lovers they ve probably turned themselves into a duck and a lake respectively people or animals geting released from wolf s stomaches and then placing stones in their place if you kill a dragon giant or other fearsome creature always cut out the tongue and hang onto in case you are betrayed by someone who claims to have killed the beast himself when confronted the deceiver will always claim that the beast had no tongue but no one will believe him if you rescue someone a fair maden of course from the bottom of the well while your companions are above ground always put something else in the basket to replace your weight because they will drop you and try to kill you Never bet against A tailor Anyone named Dummling or Thumbling The youngest of 3 brothers Anyone that can talk to or is kind to animals or who is kind to old women basically anyone young pretty and poor Always bet against ugly peopleBest stories Two Brothers two brothers wander the world with a shitload of animals at their beck and call so many in fact that they decide to split up they stab some knife or something into a tree that they can look at to see if the other is ok One becomes a king after killing a dragon the other wanders the world the king goes hunting gets turned into stone by a witch the other brother her saves him lots of other things happen it s one of the longest and strangest stories and it s just great Rumpelstiltskin One of the classics that the one I knew was actually very similar to the original NOthing uite as funny as how upset the little guy gets when she figures out his name Brother Lustig Another long and weird story this is different in that Brother Lustig first appears to be a good guy then he is kind of a jerk but he sort of gets picked on by a priest and then he tricks his way into heaven it s weird The Man of Iron Robert Bly wrote a whole book on manliness based upon this fairy tale and I can see why It just a really good story and very rich with male stereotypes Not that stereotypes are necessarily good but it just really well written and interesting The Straw The Coal and The Bean my favorite So funny Contains this passage as the coal tries to cross the river by walking on the straw The straw however beginning to burn and the Coal slipping after hissed as it reached the water and gave up the ghost The Bean which had prudently remaned up the shore was forced to laugh at this accident and the joke being so good it laughed so immoderately that it burst itself Fortunately a wandering tailor is able to stitch the bean back up3 disturbing stories The Frog Prince Did you know that in the original the frog is turned into a prince after being thrown against the wall She gets pissed at him because she is supposed to be his companion because he retrieved her ball but then he turns into a prince and they marry what kind of lesson does that teach Actually the story is really about the last paragraph about the prince s loyal servant Henry who had tied bands around his heart which broke of happiness upont the prince s return Cinderella one stepsisters tries to get into the shoe by cutting off a toe the other by cutting off a heel Their punishment for failure They get their eyes pecked out by birds The Poor Boy in his Grave An orphaned boy is adopted by a cruel farmer and wife The farmer beats for his honest or endearing mistakes like eating a bundle of grapes because he was a hungry While baling hay while they are out his sweater gets caught in the hay Knowing he will be beaten his despair leads him to drink what the the farmer s wife said was poison but is actually honey At this point you still think things are going to end up well And it s kind of funny he says I thought death would be bitter but it is so sweet He then moves onto to the fly poison about which he was also lied to because it turns out to be wine Still funny But then his drukeness makes him feel a bit woozy so he thinks he might be dying so he goes and lays in an open grave and the cold and the wine kill him He lays in the grave forever The farmer s house burns down later on and he and his wife live in poverty and misery but come onThat s all See I told you I had a lot to say

    Grimm's Fairy Tales (Gratis) I couldn't find the edition I had so I went with one that was closest in dateWhy only 4 stars for the tails we all remember fondly from childhood?
