Dec 21,2012
Printer-friendly version

5 reasons to break open the money bank and get yourself a copy of Philip Pullman's Grimm Tales for Young and Old...

1. The book trailer is beautiful.

2. The tales are creepy, just like the Grimm brothers intended.

3. Philip Pullman has retold fifty - Yes! Fifty! - of the Grimm fairytales in this novel. 

4. The cover is very very pretty. Let's just all awwwww over the cover for a moment:

File 12567

5. All your favourites - Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Hansel and Gretel - make an appearance, along with some you might not know - The Girl with no Hands, Hans-my-Hedgehog, and Godfather Death.

Awwww. That is pretty. I was actually thinking of reading the original Grimm fairytales. I don't think I've read them (at least not many of them), I've mostly just seen the movies and read different versions by other people. Well, another book on my holiday reading list. x)
