Title Profile & Character Information

Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm

Its been 200 years since the publication of the first volume of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimms Childrens and Household Tales, and well be seeing celebrations. Norton is issuing an update of Maria Tatars The Annotated Brothers Grimm, and now Pullman has jumped in with his own versions of 50 of the immortal tales, from perennials like "Cinderella" to less familiar gems like "Briar-Rose." The dark edginess of Pullmans own work (e.g., "His Dark Materials" trilogy) seems a good match for the Grimm tone of the originals.
