Grimm's Fairy Tales

Kind, cruel, occasionally shocking and often just absurd.

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm’s Children’s and Household Tales was first published in 1812. Some of the stories were folk tales the brothers collected from a wide range of people, others re-tellings of already famous tales.

Roger Wilson reads the Grimm versions of some of the fairy tales, which are kind, cruel, occasionally shocking and other times just absurd... but always entertaining! Enjoy!
