The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm All-New Third Edition
The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm All-New Third Edition | Jack Zipes
The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm Perhaps no other stories possess as much power to enchant, delight, and surprise as those penned by the immortal Brothers Grimm. Now, in the new, expanded third edition, renowned scholar and folklorist Jack Zipes has translated all 250 tales collected and published by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, plus twenty-nine rare tales omitted from the original German edition, as well as narratives uncovered in the brothers letters and papers. Truly the most comprehensive translation to date, this critically acclaimed edition recaptures the fairy tales as the Brothers Grimm intended them to be: rich, stark, spiced with humor and violence, resonant with folklore and song. One of the worlds experts on childrens literature, Jack Zipes is a professor of German at the University of Minnesota and is the author of numerous books on folklore and fairy tales. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A pick, purely out of nostalgia. Reading them back again today I had mixed feelings. On the one hand I took a trip down memory lane and had a few laughs to myself, but some of the 'morals' in the story are so skewed it was mind blowing to think that even at the time it was acceptable. Still, some of them are truly classic 🧡

My #LeastRated #TBRChallenge is going well and I'm just about on track to finish by new year 😁

They‘re all here, the familiar stories we grew up with, and unfamiliar tales, too. Yet, even the tales we know are somewhat unfamiliar, because the versions we read as children were sanitised. These are the originals, in all their (sometimes violent or gory, sometimes bemusing) unsanitised form. Well worth a read, even just to see how different they are from their “reboots”.

Chelleo Welcome to Litsy! Hope these #Litsytips by @RaimeyGallant http://bit.ly/litsytips and #LitsyHowTo videos: goo.gl/UrCpoU are helpful. #LitsyWelcomeWagon

The book was fun but kind of hard to read. Some of the words were outdated. The stories were nice to read before going to sleep. Overall the book was nice and a fun little read.

“The wife ran off, and found her husband lying in a corner, groaning, with one of his ribs broken.

She took him up and ran with loud outcries to the boy‘s father, and told him, ‘Your son has brought a great misfortune on us; he has thrown my husband down and broken his bones.‘”

I can‘t find the actual version of this book in the system, but Jace absolutely loved this and was laughing the whole time. He really likes stories that rhyme. I got this from Book Outlet and I‘m hoping I can find more of these giant story time books! 5⭐️

Found a huge collection of Grimm fairy tales at the thrift store for 99 cents. So excited! Did anyone grow up with the original stories alongside the Disney movies? As a kid I loved the originals just as much, if not more, even if they were dark. I mentioned I grew up with the originals to someone the other day and they thought it was so weird (chalked it up to me being homeschooled, lol).

I know this isn't the right day/month/whatever. I'm just trying to catch-up at this point. 😅
1. I don't know if I have a favorite; I just enjoy fairy tales.
2. Both, depending on my mood and the opinion of the small overlord usually wielding the remote in my house.
3. Not sure which Friday this was supposed to be...🤷‍♀️
4. Mayo 🤢 On anything, not just a sandwich. Thanks for the tag, @Ddzmini

These Pantheon fairy tale and folklore library look nice, but this is my first try. I'm hoping I'll be a decent judge, as I've just read a couple mythology/fairy tale books gifted to me from China! I'll let you guys know. 😉🧚‍♀️ So far, I just have this and Japanese Tales. I also want the one on India. #bedsidereading

1) I like the original Brothers Grimm versions. Snow White and Rose Red is probably my favorite.
2) Shrek (although I do love both, and I looked like Boo from Monster‘s Inc when I was a toddler. 😂)
3) 915pmish...I think? 🤷🏻‍♀️
4) I don‘t like my lettuce next to mustard. Both are fine, they just have to be separated by cheese or meat.

I haven‘t been participating so far this month, but I‘ve enjoyed seeing all the posts for #OldCoolBooks. Today, I‘ve got one that is a bit worse for wear and has more than #yellowedpages. This retired St. Louis Public Library book stamped in 1914 is probably the oldest book I own.
