The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales by Leslie

Children's and Household Tales (German: Kinder-und Hausmärchen) is a collection of German-origin fairy tales first published in 1812 by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the Brothers Grimm. The collection is commonly known today as Grimm's Fairy Tales (German: Grimms Märchen).

There are over 200 tales, and although I collect vintage children's books and have many illustrations, I'll probably limit myself to about a dozen tales. Lenna Andrews hosted a Grimm-themed swap in June 2008.

Sleeping Beauty
(Little Briar-Rose)

When Sleeping Beauty was a baby, she was cursed by a fairy to fall into a deep sleep of a hundred years if she should ever prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. The King then ordered all spinning wheels to be burned. However, when Sleeping Beauty was fifteen or sixteen, she found a room in the castle with an old woman using a spinning wheel...

Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes...

Rumpelstiltskin, etc.


Cinderella (French: Cendrillon) is a popular fairy tale embodying a classic folk tale theme of unjust oppression/triumphant reward. The German versus French versions vary in certain details (like the clothes for the Ball in the French version being provided by the fairy-godmother, instead of by the birds that Cinderella had befriended in the German version).

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Little Red Riding Hood
or Little Red-Cap (Rotkäppchen)

Little Red Riding Hood is about a young girl's encounter with a wolf. The story has changed a lot in its history, and been subject to numerous modern adaptations and readings. The tale makes a clear contrast between the safe world of the village and the dangers of the forest, and is also a strong morality tale, teaching children not to "wander off the path."

The Seven Ravens, The Twelve Brothers, etc.
