Once upon a time, a girl was sent to live with a woman not her mother, and two others not her sisters—none of whom desire her to attend the fey lord’s ball.

(A novella of about 23,000 words—about 1.5 hours of reading time, for the average reader.)

About the author

CARRALEE BYRD is a Christian author of dark fantasy for adults. She’s been a storyteller since she was little, when she freaked out her mother with stories about the bad man who tied up Grandmother and left her in the closet. Her mother never did figure out where the stories were coming from, and the author’s imagination never has stopped freaking out her mother. Carralee Byrd writes more balanced (but still fairly dark) fantasy as Misti Wolanski.

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezsö.

From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold—heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique—they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes.

A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.
