#1 New York Timesbestseller Philip Pullman retells the world's best-loved fairy tales on their 200th anniversary Two hundred years ago, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published the first volume of Children's and Household Tales. Now, at a veritable fairy-tale moment-witness the popular television shows Grimmand Once Upon a Timeand this year's two movie adaptations of "Snow White"-Philip Pullman, one of the most popular authors of our time, makes us fall in love all over again with the immortal tales of the Brothers Grimm. From much-loved stories like "Cinderella" and "Rumpelstiltskin," "Rapunzel" and "Hansel and Gretel" to lesser-known treasures like "Briar-Rose," "Thousandfurs," and "The Girl with No Hands," Pullman retells his fifty favorites, paying homage to the tales that inspired his unique creative vision-and that continue to cast their spell on the Western imagination.
