In Hansel and Gretel, a famine has settled over the land.

Days of wandering lead them to a beautiful cottage made of gingerbread and candy, which the children begin to eat. Lured inside by an old woman who promises hot baths, soft beds and more delicious food, the children are captured and enslaved by what turns out to be a cannibalistic witch. The resourceful children must rely on their wits to make a daring escape.
This collection of Grimms' Fairy Tales features the original stories by which many popular books, movies, and plays were inspired. With stories such as Snow White, The Frog Prince, Hansel and Gretel, and many more, Grimms' Fairy Tales were among the first collections of stories and have since become some of the most influential of our time. Unlike the Hollywood adaptations of some of these most treasured stories, the collected stories of the Grimms brothers are just that - grim. You won't find gentle happily-ever-after's--each tale is delightfully twisted and sprinkled with some sort of wickedness on every page. In this edition you'll come to explore the world of grouchy old women and devilishly tricky creatures as you make your way through the ever enthralling stories that make up the Grimms' Fairy Tales.
Grimm's Fairy Tales is a collection of German fairy tales first published in 1812 by the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm. They were among the best-known storytellers of folk tales, and popularized stories such as The Frog Prince, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Riding Hood, and Snow White. The influence of these fairy tales was widespread. W. H. Auden praised the collection as one of the founding works of Western culture. The popularity of the Grimms' folk tales has endured well. The tales are available in more than 100 languages and have been later adapted by Walt Disney, with films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Tangled.
Snow-White and Rose-Red"e; is a German fairy tale. The best-known version is the one collected by the Brothers Grimm as tale number 161. An older, somewhat shorter version, The Ungrateful Dwarf, was written by Caroline Stahl (1776-1837); this in fact appears to be the oldest variant of the tale, as there are no known previous oral versions, although several have been collected since its publication. The oral variants of this tale are very limited in area.
In Snowdrop (or "e;Snow White"e;) a queen sewing by the window during a snowfall pricks her finger. Admiring the drops of blood on the snow, she wishes for a daughter "e;as white as that snow, as red as that blood, and as black as this ebony windowframe!"e;. The queen dies, but not before giving birth to Snowdrop. The girl's stepmother, a vain and vindictive woman, plots to eliminate Snowdrop, who grows more beautiful by the day. Snowdrop is left in the forest to die but takes shelter with seven dwarfs who become her protector when the evil stepmother learns she is still alive.
In Iron Hans"e; a series of huntsmen disappear in a mysterious forest. It is eventually discovered that an iron-skinned man is dragging everything into the lake where he lives. The man is captured by the king and subsequently released by the prince, who then sets out on his own. What follows is a coming of age story in which the prince, with the help of the iron-skinned man defeats an army and wins the hand of a princess. The prince is reunited with his parents and Iron Hans is revealed to be a normal man who was under a spell and released from it by the prince who was found to be pure of heart.
In The Seven Ravens a peasant sends his seven sons to fetch water for his daughter's christening. Having lost their pails in the well, they are afraid to return home without having completed their task. The peasant, thinking they have gone off to play, curses them whereupon they are immediately transformed into ravens. When the daughter is grown up she sets off to discover the whereabouts of her long lost brothers. This folk tale exists in multiple varieties and was adapted into film in 1937.
In "e;The Golden Goose"e; Dummling, the youngest and simplest of three brothers, is sent into the forest to chop wood. He shares his food and drink with a little gray man who directs him to a tree which, when chopped down, is found to contain a golden goose. Dummling sets off on a journey with the goose under his arm, eventually arriving in a kingdom wherein the king will offer his daughter's hand in marriage to any man who can make her laugh. This fairy tale, which features many common folk idioms (Least of Three, Princess Prize, The Fairy Gift) has numerous versions (The Princess Who Never Smiled, Peruonto) in other languages and cultures.
The Juniper Tree is a German fairy tale that contains themes of child abuse, murder and cannibalism and is one of the Brothers Grimm's darker and more mature fairy tales. In it, a boy is murdered and made into a stew by his evil stepmother, who buries his bones beneath a juniper tree outside their house. The boy is reincarnated as a bird who flies forth from the tree and enlists the townspeople to help him exact revenge. It is thought that the Grimm version of this tale was adapted from painter Philipp Otto Runge's "e;The Almond Tree"e;.
In The Elves and the Shoemaker a poor shoemaker prepares his last piece of leather to work on before turning in for bed. In the morning, he is amazed to find the shoes already made. Selling these to a grateful customer, his financial obligations are met and he is able to buy more leather for two more pairs. When these are completed overnight in a similar fashion he stays awake to solve the mystery. Learning that a team of naked elves are responsible for the fine shoes, the shoemaker and his wife create tiny clothes for the elves to thank them. A popular tale that has been adapted many times for film and TV.
The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids is a fairy tale that strongly resembles The Three Little Pigs and elements of Little Red Riding Hood. In it, a mother goat leaves her kids home alone, warning them not to open the door. A Big Bad Wolf shows up and tries to talk his way in, but the kids hold fast. When the wolf finally gets past the door through trickery, he eats all but one of the kids. The mother goat returns to find the wolf sleeping under a tree. With the help of the one child who wasn't eaten she rescues the remaining six with the help of a pair of scissors and some large rocks.
