Cinderella: The Brothers Grimm
Cinderella is perhaps the best loved fairy tale of all time; appearing in nearly every language and enjoyed by children the world over.
Beautifully illustrated by Laura Filippucci, this classic is brought to new life in vivid ink and watercolor—adding beauty and detail akin to a Currier and Ives painting.
The classic tale of Cinderella is retold in this NorthSouth Books edition, with all of the details that make it authentic to the Brothers Grimm story.
Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were born in Hanau, near Frankfurt, Germany, in 1785 and 1786 respectively. The Brothers Grimm collected fairy tales, which until then had mostly been passed on orally, and captured them in writing for the first time as a collection. One of their most important sources was the storyteller Dorothea Viehmann. The first volume of their Children’s and Household Tales was published just before Christmas 1812. Their fairy tales have appeared in many languages since and in a multitude of editions. In 2005 the Grimms’ fairy tales were made part of UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register for the preservation of cultural documents.
