Classic Monday: The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales by The Brother's Grimm

880 pages

With the words “Once upon a time,” the Brothers Grimm transport readers to a timeless realm where witches, giants, princesses, kings, fairies, goblins, and wizards fall in love, try to get rich, quarrel with their neighbors, and have magical adventures of all kinds—and in the process reveal essential truths about human nature.

You think you know fairytales? Well unless you have read The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales you really have no idea. The original fairytales are a bit darker than their Disney counterparts but the morals and lessons taught are just the same if not greater. This book is such an important piece of literature to me that I have both a hard copy on my bookshelf and an ebook copy on my Nook Color. I think that this is a definite must when it comes to classic books that should be read and enjoyed for a long time to come.
