A collection of six tales from the Brothers Grimm, all featuring animal characters, is brought to life for contemporary audiences.

McMillan Palgrave
Six delightful stories, some familiar, some, less so, freshly translated by a noted author and sumptuously illustrated by a renowned artist.

There have been many collections of tales from the Brothers Grimm over the years but few as engaging, and as handsome, as this one. Doris Orgel, who treasured these stories as a child in Vienna, has chosen six of her favorites, all featuring animal characters, and brought them to life for contemporary audiences. In addition to the title story the collection includes The Hare and the Hedgehog, King of the Birds, How the Birds and Beasts Went to War, The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids, and The Fox and the Geese.

The stories are accompanied by marvelously detailed illustrations by Bert Kitchen, who previously collaborated with Ms. Orgel on her collection of Aesop tales, The Lion and the Mouse.
