An OK read, not much special. I guessed who the bad guy was on page 75 or so. But it wasnt bad either so I stuck with it. Plus it covers FOUR bingo squares

Grimms' Fairy Tales | Jacob Grimm

I would definitely include this collection of books in my classroom and share the stories inside of it with my students. They are classic fairytales that every student should know the story of. The stories are very interesting and I know young children especially would LOVE to read them and talk about them.

This is a fairytale book. It is a collection of very popular and well-known children's stories. It includes books such as Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, and the Little Witch. All the stories are perfect examples of fairytale books because they are made-up creations but that are realistic and interesting to young children.

This book was a wonderful retake on a classic fairytale; not for its content, but it‘s ingenuity! It‘s storyteller, the very author himself who peppers in his own comments throughout, has spun a tale of two children by using famous Grim Brothers Fairytales and weaving Hansel and Gretel through its twists and turns! It was undoubtedly clever! Very dark children‘s story though; the author does not wish young children to be present while reading.

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 😁

#24B4MONDAY #readathon

I was able to finish this cute book before my time was up on the loan. Now I‘m headed home to start up on my next book and eat my snack.

I am up to 8 hours for the readathon.

ElizaMarie Ooo this looks super cute! Is it a graphic novel? 4w
jb72 @ElizaMarie You know I didn‘t know. I actually listened to the book on audio. So I downloaded book two (ebook) to find out and no, they are not graphic novels. 4w
ElizaMarie It looks like these would be cute graphic novels ! 4w
jb72 @ElizaMarie Yeah the covers make it seem like they would be. But overall the story is pretty good. 4w
MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4w

When read in their original form you realize that this is #aScaryBook! (At least to readers like me.) #fallisbooked @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

ValerieAndBooks I have that same exact edition! Ordered it through QPBC many years ago. Definitely more gruesome than the versions for today‘s children. 1mo
Lcsmcat @ValerieAndBooks Yep - that‘s where we got this one. My husband‘s favorite quote from it is “She was only good to have boots thrown at her head” which probably sounds really awful in German! 1mo
KarmonR My edition from QPBC as well. 🤭 1mo

ValerieAndBooks 👍👍@lcsmcat @karmonr !! I miss QPBC! Was a member for many years. This was back in the day when trade paperbacks were not that common. Online shopping just isn‘t the same as poring through a paper catalog full of book blurbs. 1mo
Lcsmcat @ValerieAndBooks Yes! We joined shortly after we got married and built our library that way. Are they still around? 1mo
ValerieAndBooks @Lcsmcat unfortunately not. They got folded into The Literary Guild a few years ago. And the LG apparently is still around, which surprised me — I only see references to BOTM these days! 1mo

Had to read this one again for the bone prompt! Shaun Tan‘s sculptures are so perfectly horrific alongside snippets from Grimms‘ Fairy Tales. I can‘t get enough! ☠️
