Grimm’s Fairy Tales – Illustrated by Ada Dennis and Others
Grimm’s Fairy Tales – Illustrated by Ada Dennis is a wonderful collection of classic fairy tales including ‘Little Snow White’, ‘Rapunzel’, ‘Hop-O’-My-Thumb’, ‘The Three Little Men in the Wood’, ‘Snow White and Rose Red’, ‘Clever Grethel’, ‘The Giants Three Golden Hairs’, and many more. It is translated by L. L. Weedon, and the stories are accompanied by the striking colour and black-and-white illustrations of Ada Dennis, E. Stuart Hardy, E. Nister, Arch Webb, G. H. Thompson, and others – with the illustrations appearing alongside the text, so that the two may be better appreciated.
The Brothers Grimm are perhaps the best known folklorists of all time. Die Brüder Grimm; Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors – who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the nineteenth century. The popularity of their collected tales has endured well; they have been translated into more than 100 languages, and remain in print in the present day. This is a text to be appreciated by young and old alike; extraordinary for its literary as well as artistic significance.
