Grimm Tales for Young and Old

15849807
Grimm Tales for Young and Old by Philip Pullman
Published September 27 2012 Penguin
 
 
This is a compendium of re-worked fairy tales written originally by the Brothers Grimm.
 
I have a soft spot for fairy tales and reading these took me straight back to childhood . Old favourites are included; Cinderella, Briar Rose, Rapunzel mixed with not so well known (to me anyway) tales; The Donkey Cabbage, Godfather Death and Bearskin.
 
Full of wicked witches, handsome princes and moral goodness, these are stories you shall want to read again and again.
 
I borrowed this book from the library which meant I had to give it back. It had been promptly added to my 'To Buy' list instead.
