The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, and authors who together collected folklore. They are among the most well-known storytellers of European folk tales, and their work popularized such stories as "Cinderella" (Aschenputtel), "The Frog Prince" (Der Froschkönig), "Hansel and Gretel" (Hänsel und Gretel), "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstiltskin" (Rumpelstilzchen), and "Snow White" (Schneewittchen). Their first collection of folk tales, Children's and Household Tales (Kinder- und Hausmärchen), was published in 1812.
The book includes five famous tales of the Brothers Grimm fully illustrated all-color (more than 20 colour illustrations): CINDERELLA, LITTLE SNOW-WHITE, THE FROG PRINCE, THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE and LITTLE RED-CAP.
Young readers will love the charming all-color illustrations, while parents will appreciate the moral at the end of the tales.
