In this enchanting selection of fairy tales, award-winning author Philip Pullman presents his fifty favourite stories from the Brothers Grimm in a 'clear as water' retelling, making them feel fresh and unfamiliar with his dark, distinctive voice.

From the otherworldly romance of classics such as 'Rapunzel', 'Snow White' and 'Cinderella' to the black wit and strangeness of such lesser-known tales as 'The Three Snake Leaves', 'Hans-my-Hedgehog' and 'Godfather Death', Pullman captures the appeal that has held the imagination of readers for centuries, following each tale with a brief and fascinating commentary on the story's background and history. In his introduction, he discusses why these stories have lasted so long, and become part of our collective storytelling imagination.

Pullman's Grimm Tales of wicked wives, brave children and villainous kings will have you reading, reading aloud and rereading them for many years to come.
