Summary

*National Bestseller*

The acclaimed retelling of the world&;s best-loved fairy tales by the #1
New York Times bestselling author of The Golden Compass and The Book of Dust&;now in paperback, and with 3 new tales!

Two centuries ago, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their first volume of fairy tales. Since then, such stories as &;Cinderella,&; &;Snow White,&; &;Rapunzel,&; and &;Hansel and Gretel&; have become deeply woven into the Western imagination. Now Philip Pullman, the New York Times bestselling author of the His Dark Materials trilogy, makes us fall in love all over again with the immortal tales of the Brothers Grimm.

Here are Pullman&;s fifty favorites&;a wide-ranging selection that includes the most popular stories as well as lesser-known treasures like &;The Three Snake Leaves,&; &;Godfather Death,&; and &;The Girl with No Hands&;&;alongside his personal commentaries on each story&;s sources, variations, and everlasting appeal. Suffused with romance and villainy, danger and wit, Pullman&;s beguiling retellings will cast a spell on readers of all ages.
