Description

Enchanting, brimming with the wonder and magic of once upon a time, the fairly tales of the Brothers
Grimm are the special stories of childhood that stay with us throughout our lives. But most Americans
know them only secondhand, in adaptations that greatly reduce the tales' power to touch our emotions
and intrigue our imaginations. Now, in the most comprehensive translation to date, here are the classic
fairy tales as the Brothers Grimm intended them to be-rich, stark, spiced
Excerpt

One fine evening a young princess put on her bonnet and clogs, and went out to take a walk by herself in
a wood; and when she came to cool spring of water, that rose in the midst of it, she sat herself down to
rest a while. Now she had a golden ball in her hand, which was her favourite plaything; and she was
always tossing it up into the air, and catching it again as it fell. After a time she threw it up so high that
she missed catching it as it fell; and the ball bounded away, and rolled along upon the ground, till at last
it fell down into the spring. The princess looked into the spring after her ball, but it was very deep, so
deep that she could not see the bottom of it. Then she began to bewail her loss, and said, 'Alas! if I could
only get my ball again, I would give all my fine clothes and jewels, and everything that I have in the world.'
Author Bio
the Grimm Brothers
The brothers Grimm, who gave us the fairy tales generally known by their name, were grave scholarly
men who spent most of their lives in research.<br><br>Jacob was born in 1785 and Wilhelm a year later.
Their father, a lawyer, died when they were children, but their mother was bent on seeing her sons follow
in his footsteps, and this they did with financial aid from an aunt. They were born at Hanau in Hesse, and
went to the University at Cassel, where they both qualified successfully in law. There was no money to
help them to a position, and they had their mother to keep, so they took what work offered. Jacob
became assistant to a famous specialist in Roman law, Professor Savigny, who showed him what
research meant and implanted in his mind such a love of it that he became one of the great men of his
time — not, however, on matters of law, but in philology, the study of language.
