Grimms' Fairy Tales is a charming new edition of one of the best-known collections of children's stories of all times. Peter Carter brings a novelist's flair for narrative pace and vivid imagery to these familiar tales while remaining faithful to the spirit and tone of the original orally transmitted stories. The authentic rhythm of spoken English is captured in Carter's clear and resonant style.
All the favorite characters are here--Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, Red Riding Hood--along with others less well-known in gripping tales such as The Singing Bone and The Carrion Crows. Haunting and powerful, sad and humorous, these stories remain as fresh and fascinating as the first day they were told.
