Jacob and Wilhelm's first book of fairy tales, Children's and Household Tales, published in 1812, included 86 folktales and was an instant success. Shortly thereafter, the brothers incorporated 70 more stories in their next volume of Grimms' Fairy Tales. This continued for six more editions! The complete collection contains over 200 stories, and is probably the best-known work of German literature.

Filled with fantasy, magic, and talking animals, these enchanting tales for children often teach a lesson about moral values, and right from wrong. Reader Laura Paton's warmth and flair for characters, paired with bright and exciting classical music, results in a memorable production that younger listeners will enjoy again and again.

In this title you will find The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids, The Pack of Ragamuffins, Brother and Sister, The Three Snake-Leaves, The Boots of Buffalo-Leather, The Drummer, The Three Spinners, Old Rinkrank, The Grave Mound, The Master Thief, The Hare and the Hedgehog, The Little Folks' Presents, Master Cobbler's Awl, and The Three Sluggards.

    " Another required reading for the Coursera class. As described by the professor, the purpose of the Grimms' tales was to create a German cultural unity. Many of the stories came from other places, for example, Sleeping Beauty was written by the French Charles Perrault. "
