About the book:

"A milestone, a tour de force, a joy to see...27 stories from the Grimm brothers' collection [including] some familiar tales and others that are less well known. The translations...are direct and fresh, unexpurgated and unsweetened. The illustrations are superb; beautiful, imaginative, appropriate, tender and terrible-as though the tales had been waiting for Maurice Sendak to interpret them. For children and adults."-Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Translated by Lore Segal with four tales translated by Randall Jarrell. Illustrated by Maurice Sendak

" Many Fur" is translated from the text in the first edition of Kinder- und Hansmarchen (1812, 1815), which is more coherent than the versions in the later editions. The other tales are translated from lalter texts, as reworked by the Brothers Grimm.

Randall Jarrell's translations of "Fisherman and His Wife,"Hansel and Gretel," The Golden Bird and Other Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (Macmillian, 1962), are reprinted here.
